On Tuesday, 37-year-old Valorie Carrigan of Blodgett pleaded no contest to criminally negligent homicide and assault in the third degree.

Police say Duffy lost control, crossed into oncoming traffic, and hit another vehicle head on. She died at the scene.

Carrigan’s sentencing is set for April 15.
