Trisha Kerr was my husband's cousin's wife...
the WRONG PERSON DIED in this CRASH.....I hope Jennifer Yelk SPENDS the REST of her LIFE in PRISON.. Why did Jennifer not have an interlock on her automobile after the second charge? Why is what my family going to have to live without a beautiful young lady just coming home from work have to die?

Trisha Kerr was one of the most wonderful young ladies I've ever met. She is my daughter's 1st cousin. My memory of Trisha is that of love and laughter--of deep family ties. I don't think Jennifer has even a clue as to how many lives were affected by the loss of Trisha. We can only pray that Jennifer spends the rest of her life behind bars thinking of the wrongs she has done. How many drunk driving tickets does it take for someone to finally do something with Jennifer?

I hope that the judge in Dane County is also held accountable for this horrible accident. Jennifer Yelk should have still been in jail after being pulled over for her THIRD drunk driving on April 30th. If the judge would have done more than slap Jennifer on the wrist maybe she would not have been out of jail and able to drive. Trisha was a wonderful person and alway brought a smile to your face. I am not a relative of hers but I still cant get over the fact that she is gone. I sure hope that Jennifer doesnt play the card of "I have 4 kids I cant go to jail". She took the ability to be a mom from Trisha and I hope that the court system takes her children from her. They would be better off in foster care.
