Butte County, Calif.-- District Attorney Mike Ramsey say 69-year-old Christine Rowe plead no contest to a felony count of gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated.

This count stems from a head-on crash on Highway 32 in September of last year. The crash left 22-year-old Luis Saucedo, of Corning, dead.

Rowe will be sentenced in August.
