Woman from Springfield Found Guilty in Crash that Killed Two

A woman from Springfield is now awaiting sentencing after being found guilty of crimes stemming from a car crash that killed two people.

Prosecutors say 33-year-old Corina Stockstill was found guilty Thursday on two counts of involuntary manslaughter.

Investigators say she was driving on Farm Road 159 December 23, 2016 when she crossed the centerline in her pickup and hit another truck head-on.

The driver of the other truck, 32-year-old Dustin Emmett, and a passenger in Stockstill’s vehicle, 37-year-old Nicholas Thomas, died in the crash.

Police say Stockstill was found to be under the influence at the time of the crash.

Her sentencing hearing has been scheduled for September 29.
