Sentence reduced in N. Idaho cyclist death case

SANDPOINT, Idaho - A driver from Newport, Wash., who killed a cyclist and injured a runner competing in a relay race in northern Idaho last summer has been granted a reduced sentence.

SANDPOINT, Idaho — A driver from Newport, Wash., who killed a cyclist and injured a runner competing in a relay race in northern Idaho last summer has been granted a reduced sentence.

Thirty-one-year-old Bowdeen S. Kahuhu had her 1-year sentence reduced Friday in 1st District Court to six months over the objections of the victim's family.

Kahuhu killed 46-year-old Patricia Anne Lambie of Greenacres, Wash., and injured a 17-year-old Spokane-to-Sandpoint relay runner on Aug. 14 in what police said was a case of drowsy driving.

Kahuhu pleaded guilty to vehicular manslaughter in November and was given a year in jail.

The Bonner County Daily Bee reports that Kahuhu's attorney petitioned for a reduced sentence so Kahuhu could care for her eight children.

Kahuhu has about 75 days left to serve.
