MIAMI COUNTY — A Troy woman received a reduced charge and was sentenced this week in Miami County Municipal Court in connection with a fatal accident in August 2017.

Latrisha N. McGhee, 33, of Troy, was found guilty of fourth-degree misdemeanor wrongful entrustment of a motor vehicle, amended down from second-degree misdemeanor vehicular manslaughter. McGhee was sentenced to one year of probation and received a fine and suspended jail time in Miami County Municipal Court on Monday.

McGhee reportedly rear-ended a vehicle in which the victim — Florine Frances Boze, 83, of Sidney, formerly of Troy — was a passenger on Aug. 7, 2017, according to Troy Police Department reports. The vehicle Boze was riding in was stopped while attempting to turn left off of West Main Street onto Westbrook Lane, and McGhee’s vehicle struck the back end of the stopped vehicle. McGhee reportedly did not noticed that vehicle had stopped.

McGhee along with the passengers of the other vehicle all suffered injuries, and both vehicles had significant damage. Boze and another passenger were trapped in the vehicle and had to be extracted from the back seat.

According to police reports, Boze suffered multiple pelvic fractures, from which she passed away on Aug. 13, 2017, at Miami Valley Hospital.

McGhee was not originally charged until Dec. 21.
