Bessemer woman sentenced in Bibb County wreck that killed 5-year-old girl

A Bessemer woman has been sentenced to 12 years in prison after pleading guilty to reckless manslaughter in a January 2014 wreck in Bibb County that killed a 5-year-old girl. Other children were in the car and one was riding in Jones' lap when the wreck happened, Jackson had said previously. "That's going to give her time to think about what a tragic and senseless act that was," Bibb County District Attorney Michael Jackson said of the sentence. Kathy Jones, 33, pleaded guilty under a plea deal with the district attorney's office and was sentenced by Circuit Judge Jack Meigs on Friday. Jones was charged in the death of Isabel "Izzy" Parks, of West Blocton, who died after a Jan. 10, 2014 wreck on Hopewell Church Road north of Centreville.
