Mrs. Guerrero was driving the vehicle at the time down Highway 21 in San Marcos when the public relations student, who was driving a Chevy Impala, drifted into oncoming traffic and crashed with their auto head-on. Inside the Corolla were father-to-be Fabian Guerrero-Moreno, 23, and his wife, Kristian Nicole Guerrero, who was five months pregnant.

"It's really blurry, I just remember as soon as the accident happened, I know that I made the worst decision ever".

Shana Elliott entered a plea of guilty for two counts of intoxication manslaughter and intoxication assault March 5. The unborn baby died later. They also said Elliott did not apply brakes before the impact. She said she remembers Elliott's auto coming toward her before she tried to swerve out of the way.

During her testimony, prosecutors showed the jury the liquor bottle found in Elliott's auto and a large bag of marijuana that was found at her home.

The newlyweds were expecting their first child together A moving photo shows the couple announcing their pregnancy.

"Everything's different, everything", said Guerrero.

Doctors tried to save her baby by inducing labour, but the child was stillborn. Guerrero got to hold his hand for a while, and his paternal grandmother got to hold him as well.

She told the jury that she's scared of drunk drivers, and doesn't drive on the weekends because of it. "My heart will always be broken", said Guerrero.

Video of Elliott's field sobriety test was shown in the courtroom. "If it's not too much trouble I simply need them to be OK".

Prosecuting attorneys asked the jury to decide the "appropriate punishment for lives destroyed".

Elliott faces a punishment range of probation to 20 years in prison on each count.
