HUNTSVILLE, AL -- Valorie Kiel Cox was sentenced this morning to 30 years in prison as part of her plea agreement on a second-degree murder charge stemming from the death of a Marshall Space Flight Center engineer.
Cox, 36, admitted she caused the death of Darren Spurlock by crashing her car into his on Redstone Arsenal last May as she was attempting to elude Huntsville Police officers following an apparent drug deal, according to court documents.
Cox led police on a high-speed chase across Huntsville, eventually reaching Martin Road and crossing on to Redstone Arsenal.
Her vehicle was traveling some 90 mph when it struck Spurlock's car, which was traveling about 15 mph through the intersection of Rideout Road and Martin, according to court documents.
