Sentencing for a Springfield woman, who pleaded guilty in May to driving under the influence in a 2014 car crash that killed a Jacksonville man and Pleasant Plains woman, has been delayed.

Twenty-nine-year-old Andrea Little pleaded guilty to aggravated DUI, possession of marijuana and several other traffic violations.

The crash, which took the lives of Steven Moore and Danielle Allen, took place on Route 125.

Sangamon County State’s Attorney John Milhiser says Little’s blood alcohol level was more than double the legal limit.

According to the State Journal Register, Milhiser plans to recommend a 20-year sentence for Little, who will have to serve 85-percent of the sentence she receives from Circuit Judge Pete Cavanagh.

The scheduled sentencing, which was set for Tuesday, has been moved to August 25th to ensure availability of witnesses for the hearing.
