A Statesville woman who pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter in connection with a 2019 crash that claimed the life of her 7-month-old child has received a suspended prison sentence.

Talisa Ramseur, 32, recently pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter and received a suspended sentence of 15 to 27 months in prison. She was charged by the Statesville Police Department in connection with a June 18, 2019, crash in which 7-month-old Lovely Ann Imes was critically injured. The child died about three months later.

According to the SPD, the child was unrestrained in the front seat of a Buick Rendezvous operated by Ramseur, who failed to yield the right of way and drove into the path of a semi-truck at the intersection of Garner Bagnal Boulevard and Rickert Street.
