SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — A judge has denied a request by a Sioux Falls woman to keep blood-alcohol test results out of her second trial on a manslaughter charge.

Thirty-one-year-old Tammy Kvasnicka was convicted and sentenced two years ago for the July 2010 crash in which authorities say she drove the wrong way on Interstate 229 in Sioux Falls while drunk and hit an oncoming car, killing another person.

The state Supreme Court overturned her conviction earlier this year. Kvasnicka faces a second trial this month. Defense lawyers on Thursday argued that her blood test results were improperly collected and should be thrown out. Prosecutors argued against it and Judge Robin Houwman sided with them.

Authorities say the blood test results show Kvasnicka’s blood-alcohol level was more than two times the legal limit.
