Sentencing Handed Down in Child’s Death

A woman is headed to prison in connection with a crash that killed a 6-year-old girl.

According to reports, Katherine Joyce Kilgore, 31, of Ashcamp in Pike County, was sentenced Friday to five years in prison.

In April 2014, police say Kilgore was driving recklessly on Highway 421 in Shelbiana when the crash happened. Kyla Fouts, 6, died in the crash, and her mother was seriously hurt.

In March 2015, she was found guilty of reckless homicide and fourth degree assault.
