Prosecutors Want to End Intoxication Manslaughter Convict's Appeal Bond

- Prosecutors file paperwork to overthrow an appeal bond for a Wichita Falls woman convicted of intoxication manslaughter.

They allege she's failed to report on her breathalyzer monitor for the past two days.

In December 2012, a 30th District Court jury found Elizabeth Duerson guilty of intoxication manslaughter for a January 2010 car accident that killed her brother.

That jury recommended a three year prison sentence, but Judge Monte Lawlis, a visiting judge, granted Duerson an appeal bond.

That means she's out on her original bond while she appeals punishment.

One of the conditions of that bond is that she use an alcohol monitor that tests her at random times throughout the day.

Because several tests have been skipped, prosecutors are asking that the appeal process end early, which would then send Duerson to prison.

No future court date is set at this time.
