Convicted killer out on bail

A Kelowna woman has been found guilty of criminal negligence and impaired driving after causing the death of two Calgary residents in 2012.

CTVNews in Calgary reports that Amie Nottebrock was speeding along Shaganappi Trail around 3 a.m. on January 8. She reached speeds of 140 km/h and ran a red light at the intersection of Country Hills Blvd. N.W. and struck a Mercedes sedan.

That driver, 20-year-old Arsh Brar, and Nottebrock’s passenger, 21-year-old Danni Victoria Russell were killed at the scene.

Nottebrock was 25 at the time and taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries. There are reports that she was also found to have a blood alcohol level of more than three times the legal limit.

She was convicted Thursday of two counts of criminal negligence causing death and two counts of impaired driving causing death.

"The criminal negligence is the most serious offence which is typically targeted for driving offenders," said Crown prosecutor Jonathan Hak, who called her conduct that night “mind numbingly criminal”.

"The blood alcohol level at the time of the crash was between 220 and 270 mg per cent so, in the order of three times the legal limit, and she went through a red light at approximately 140 kilometres per hour. The speed limit at a red light is zero kilometres per hour."

Nottebrock is currently free on bail until her sentencing date on September 26 in Calgary.
