Needham, Mass. (WHDH) – Dania Antoine-Guiteau, who had previously been convicted of motor vehicle murder, was sentenced on Friday to two and a half years in prison with six months in prison. She will have the remainder of the sentence suspended for three years of probationary supervision.
In 2018, Antione-Guiteau punched and killed 16-year-old Talia Newfield as the Needham High School student was crossing the street near her school.
Newfield’s parents spoke in court on Friday.
“For Talia’s sake and in order to achieve some degree of justice, we ask that you accept the Commonwealth’s recommendation for sentencing,” said Lisa Newfield, Talia’s mother. “It was important that the trial proceed, and it did.”
Newfield’s girlfriend, 17-year-old Adrienne Garrido, was hit by another car in the accident and died in hospital. The driver of this car will face trial in February 2023.
Antoine-Guiteau will lose her license for at least 15 years as part of the sentencing.
