GILLETTE, Wyo. - A Gillette woman says five years is not enough for the drunken driver convicted in a crash that killed her 10-year-old daughter.

Deanna Scalzo said that she had expected LaDonna Carothers to serve more time of her eight to 16 year sentence for the October 2006 crash. Scalzo's daughter, Madison, died after being airlifted to a Salt Lake City hospital.

Scalzo says she received a letter from the Wyoming Department of Corrections stating that Carothers would be eligible for parole in September, just over five years after a judge imposed sentence in July 2007.
