PORTLAND (AP) – A Brunswick woman who was convicted of manslaughter for a fatal crash more than a decade ago is going back to prison for driving drunk in December and violating probation.

A judge on Wednesday ordered 37-year-old Tracey Camic to spend eight years in prison. Camic’s blood-alcohol content was three times the legal limit when she was arrested by Brunswick police while driving home from a holiday party.

Camic was previously convicted of manslaughter in the death of William Comeau, who was killed when the car he was in collided with Camic’s car in Dedham in 1997.

Comeau’s family asked Cumberland County Superior Court Justice Roland Cole to give Camic a harsh sentence.

Camic apologized to the Comeau family, and told the judge that she is an alcoholic who had been sober for the past 10 years until having a relapse late last year.
