Family struggles with son's death as woman pleads guilty in fatal Littleton crash - Highlands Ranch Herald
The woman who killed a young couple in a car crash while fleeing police in Littleton in 2019 pleaded guilty to vehicular homicide on Feb. 13.
Deanna Bixby, 21, was one of two drivers fleeing police in stolen cars on Feb. 6, 2019, police said. Bixby crashed into a car at Mineral Avenue and Santa Fe Drive going about 100 mph, killing Ryan Carter and Jayne Davicsin.
Bixby pleaded guilty on Feb. 13 to two counts of vehicular homicide while driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, a felony. In exchange for the guilty pleas, prosecutors dropped numerous other charges, including vehicular eluding resulting in death.
Under the terms of the plea deal, Bixby will serve 20 years in prison, according to the 18th Judicial District Attorney's Office. The office declined to comment on the case until the sentence is made official in April.
The families of Bixby's victims, however, are serving life sentences of a different sort.
“We no longer have a son,” said Rod Carter, whose son Ryan, 27, was killed in the crash. “We won't have a daughter-in-law. We won't have grandkids. The Carter name has ended. It's a complete loss for us.”
Rod said h... Aug 29, 2016
Suburban students return to school Thursday
Thursday, as several suburban districts opened their doors for the new year.
Broken Arrow, Owasso, Bixby, Sapulpa, Bartlesville and Claremore all started classes.
At Broken Arrow’s Highland Park Elementary, cars were parked along the side of the road and on the grass in some areas, as parents chose to walk their children to the door on their first day rather than drop them off.
Grandparents and younger siblings in strollers could also be seen in the halls, and children carrying still-empty backpacks were showing signs of both apprehension and excitement. A few could be seen holding flowers for their teachers. In one classroom, students were working on an assignment asking them to write about their summer.
Thursday was also the first day the district’s new start times and bus schedules went into effect. Broken Arrow had to make the change to address a growing student population that was putting stress on the transportation system.
The change moved the district from a two-bell system to a three-bell system, meaning elementary, middle and high school now all have different start times. The biggest change came at the middle school level, where students ... (Tulsa World)Feb 3, 2016
Portland and another in Massachusetts, it’s only available to purchase in stores in the Bangor area, or online at savourchocolatier.com.Bixby BarsRocklandCan a candy bar also be healthy? Some say that’s impossible, but Rockland-based Bixby Bars proves that wrong. Bixby, the baby of Kate McAleer, Maine’s 2015 Small Business Association Young Entrepreneur of the Year, makes organic, all-natural, often vegan chocolate bars that will satisfy both your sweet tooth and your conscience. With varieties like Knockout (bing cherry, chipotle and peanut), Birdie (hazelnut, currants and sea salt), Nutty For You (peanut butter and sea salt) and limited edition numbers like Toboggan (cranberry, pistachio and sea salt), there’s something for everyone. Available online at bixby bars.com or in stores statewide.Ben & Bill’s Chocolate EmporiumBar HarborSince the early 1980s, Ben & Bill’s in Bar Harbor has been synonymous with two things that are a part of any perfect coastal vacation: ice cream and candy. On the candy side of things, the best way to enjoy these sweet treats is to go into the shop, located at 66 Main St. in the heart of downtown Bar Harbor. Barks, brittles, clusters, truffles, fudge and their world-famous buttercrunch, piled high in glass cases. Can’t you smell it from here? The store is closed for the winter, but re-opens in mid-March.Dean’s SweetsPortlandFor more than a decade, Dean Bingham has beautiful candies out of his Portland kitchen — the aesthetics of which reflect his previous career as an architect. He’s best known for his truffle, each a thing of beauty, though in the humble opinion of the Bangor Metro staff, the Maine Potato Chip candy bar and the Bacon Buttercrunch are out of this world. The shop is open seven days a week on Fore Street in Portland’s Old Port; all of Dean’s many sweets are available online at deanssweets.com as well. Haven’s CandiesPortlandHaven’s Candies last year celebrated its 100th birthday, making it one of the oldest continually-operating candy makers in New England. And with good reason — this most traditional of candy makers offers up good old fashioned chocolates, fudge, saltwater taffy and peanut brittle as well as Valentine’s Day specific chocolate-dipped strawberries and fancy hearts, in each of its three locations (Portland, Westbrook and Scarborough). In fact, to celebrate its centennial, in August of 2015 they crafted a 90-inch long, 418 pound chocolate lobster. No word on how long it took to eat that one.Monica’s ChocolatesLubecThe story of Monica’s Chocolates is as extraordinary as the beauty of its Lubec setting. Monica Elliott, a native of Peru (the country, not the Maine town), learned the art of chocolate from her family. Now, having lived in Maine for decades, Elliott supplies chocolate lovers statewide with bon bons filled with Sicilian pistachio creme, Peruvian liqueur, caramel-filled “sea urchins” and Maine fruit truffles. Available at the Lubec shop year-round, or online at monicachocolates.com.Wilbur’s of MaineFreeportThe most Maine-centric of the makers on this list, the folks at Wilbur’s cater to the thr...
