A 29-year-old Tigerton woman is set to be sentenced Friday morning for three felonies in the drunken-driving crash that killed an Antigo man, according to court records.
Billie Jo McSherry pleaded guilty last April. She was convicted of homicide by intoxicated use of a vehicle, injury by intoxicated use of a vehicle and operating while intoxicated causing injury in the July 8 crash that killed Robert Korhonen, 48, of Antigo and critically injured his 25-year-old daughter Stacey Zarda, court records said.
Jody Wolf Korhonen, the wife and mother of the victims said for the last year it’s been a difficult to stay positive.
"The last year, it’s been hard to get up everyday.I miss him every single day. It’s been a struggle," she said.
Korhonen said her daughter spent two months in the hospital, but has recovered physically since. However, she’s having issues mentally.
Family and friends are expected to fill the Portage County court room for the sentencing. Korhonen and others will have testimonies read.
