FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – A Pompano Beach woman's sentencing for her role in a fatal crash has been rescheduled for next month. The crash in 2017 left two people dead.
Police said Judith Khouri, 55, was driving under the influence about 3 a.m. on March 26, 2017 when her Mercedes-Benz ran a red light and collided with another car near Commercial Boulevard and Northwest 70th Avenue in Lauderhill.
Her passengers -- Benyamin Benyamin and his wife, Zafrit Ruvio Benyamin -- were killed in the crash. The couple left behind a young daughter.
Police said that Khouri, a family friend of the Benyamins, had a blood alcohol level of 0.14, nearly double the legal limit of 0.08. Khouri entered into a plea agreement with prosecutors.
