ALBUQUERQUE, New Mexico — An Arizona woman has pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter and assault charges in a car accident last year in New Mexico.

Prosecutors say 40-year-old Miranda Rentz of Red Valley entered her plea Wednesday in a federal court in Albuquerque.

Rentz was arrested in January 2015 and indicted the following month.

Prosecutors say Rentz was driving under the influence of alcohol in New Mexico's San Juan County on Jan. 17, 2015.

They say her car collided head-on with another vehicle that had two occupants. One person was killed and the other seriously injured.

At sentencing, prosecutors say Rentz faces up to eight years in prison for involuntary manslaughter and up to a 10-year prison term for assault resulting in serious bodily injury.

Her sentencing hearing has yet to be scheduled.
