Woman Who Killed School Child May Lose Probation

BENTON, Ark. (AP) - A woman who pleaded guilty to manslaughter for passing a stopped school bus and killing a 9-year-old Benton boy is accused of not meeting terms of her probation.

Family members of the victim, who supported a plan to allow Tiffany Nix to serve only a few days in jail, now say they want her to spend the balance of her 10-year sentence in prison.

Nix was convicted in the 2004 death of William "Isaac" Brian, who was a student at Salem Elementary.

Nix's sentence included community service and, for 10 years, spending the anniversary of Isaac's death in jail.

Prosecutors say Nix is accused of leaving the scene of an accident, being slow in serving her community service and not taking required prison tours.

Isaac's parents, William and Shari Brian, say they want Nix to be sent to prison.  They originally supported probation because Nix has children of her own.
