BELMONT, N.C. — A Belmont woman will spend the next 14 years in prison after admitting to taking prescription drugs and texting right before she hit and killed a man in a February wreck. 

Belinda Hudspeth, 45, pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and the prosecution, in exchange, dropped the traffic charges against her, according to WSOC.

Hudspeth admitted she was under the influence of Prozac and another prescription drug when she got behind the wheel in February.

She was also texting when she ran off of the road and hit 75-year-old Lavon Ramsey.

Ramsey had just stepped outside of her home in north Belmont.
