BRIDGEPORT, Conn. -- A Trumbull man who tried to blame a fatal Bridgeport crash on two other people has been sentenced to six years behind bars, according to The Connecticut Post.
Peter Burdick, 24, who was drunk when he crashed his car into one driven by Stratford resident Nancy E. Distefano Keller last year, was found guilty of manslaughter, The Connecticut Post reported.
Burdick first told police that someone else had been driving his Honda Odyssey minivan and when that was disproven, he blamed Keller, claiming her 2003 Nissan Altima had blown through a stop sign at Noble Avenue and Crown Street, The Connecticut Post story said.
According to Keller’s obituary, the 53-year-old was a longtime medical aesthetician, or skin specialist, and had been going to school to earn her certification as a medical assistant.
