Davila takes plea deal for 2017 fatal DUI wreck

Alora Davila took a plea deal presented by the Commonwealth Attorney’s Office in the case of a fatal 2017 wreck that killed Eric Payton on Highway 153.

Davila pleaded guilty Thursday to amended charges of manslaughter, wanton endangerment and operating a motor vehicle under the influence, aggravated.

Upon a sentencing hearing, she is likely to spend less than a year of her 13 year possible sentence due to time served. Her sentence may also include Davila to be ordered to pay restitution of $13,741.60 to the family for funeral costs.
