IOWA COUNTY (WKOW) — A judge sentenced a woman to a 10-year prison sentence on Wednesday in connection to an OWI homicide case from 2017 in Iowa County.
The sentence includes eight years extended supervision. Kelly Johnsrud admitted to killing Kevin Kaltenberg in a 2017 crash on Highway 14 near Arena.
It was an emotional day in court as Johnsrud and the victim’s family spoke.
“This is something I never thought to have to go through so please bear with me if I don’t share my feelings just right. I’d have quite some time to come to terms with the actions my addiction led me to. Never in a million years did I think I would cause such heartbreak on an innocent family,” said Johnsrud.
“We are hoping that something can be done to the judicial system that people cannot possibly get back on the road in this amount of time,” said James Kaltenberg, the victim’s father.
In court, it was stated that Johnsrud had been arrested for drunken driving both of the previous two days leading up to the crash. The third day she killed someone.
