Kayla Mendoza, 22, boasted on social media about being drunk before she killed Kaitlyn Ferrante and Marisa Catronio in a South Florida road accident back in November 2012.

Mendoza pleaded guilty in February to two DUI manslaughter charges, and prior to sentencing she tearfully read a letter to the families of Kaitlyn and Marisa.

She was 20-years-old and driving without a valid license when she drove head-on into Kaitlyn Ferrante and Marisa Catronio’s vehicle.

The collision killed Marisa instantly, but Ferrante died in hospital four days later due to her injuries.
