A woman who was driving under the influence when her car swerved into the oncoming lane and killed a motorcyclist in Bucks County faces 3 to 6 years in state prison.

Forty-eight-year-old Brenda Nauroth pleaded guilty Monday to homicide by vehicle while driving under the influence and other charges. Nautroth was led away weeping after sentencing.

County Judge Rea Boylan also sentenced her to 5 years probation. And she must perform 25 hours of community service giving talks about drunken driving.

Nauroth's car crossed the centerline July 21 on Route 313 in Richland Township, colliding with two motorcycles. One rider, 51-year-old Michael Fayewicz, was thrown 40 feet and killed. The other, 74-year-old William Erb, was seriously injured.
