Man pleads guilty in DUI wreck that killed nurse

VICKSBURG, Miss. —  

A Vicksburg man faces up to 50 years in prison when he is sentenced April 5 for aggravated driving under the influence in a wreck that killed a nurse in 2012.

The Vicksburg Post reports that Julius Hebron pleaded guilty Friday in Warren County Circuit Court to two counts of aggravated DUI causing injury or death. Each carries a maximum of 25 years in prison.

Authorities say Hebron ran a stoplight and struck the driver's side of a car driven by Andrea Michelle "Shelly" Guider, a nurse at River Region Medical Center. Guider was pronounced dead at the scene.

Prosecutors say a blood sample taken from Hebron showed a blood alcohol level of 0.20 percent. The legal limit in Mississippi is 0.08 percent.
