Prosecutors say early July 4, 2021, Jennie Clark was driving her husband and three children home from a party when the couple began fighting. That’s when she drove the vehicle off the road and into a telephone pole on the side of Colby Street. Matthew Clark was killed immediately. Their children were not injured.

After she serves her sentence, Jennie Clark will spend five years on post-release supervision.
