Crystal Ewertz in court

OKLAHOMA CITY – An Oklahoma City woman accused in the death of her wife will serve no jail time.

In Sept. 2015, Sabrina Ewertz, 32, was killed during a fight with her wife, Chrysanthemum Ewertz, 29, who goes by Crystal.

According to investigators, Crystal was trying to leave in her vehicle when Sabrina jumped on the hood.

Crystal allegedly pushed on the gas and Sabrina was thrown to the pavement, where she died.

Police say Crystal left the scene, but eventually came back. She was arrested and taken to jail.

Although Crystal was originally arrested for first-degree murder, the charge was later modified by the district attorney.

She was officially charged with first-degree manslaughter and driving under the influence.

Crystal initially pleaded not guilty to the manslaughter charge; however, earlier this year, she pleaded guilty.

On Friday, a judge sentenced Crystal to serve 10 years probation.

She was also ordered to complete 300 hours of community service.

People who knew the couple said they had been together for several years.

Sabrina leaves behind a son.
