Obdulia Sanchez – the teen who killed her sister in a brutal car crash and then live-streamed her death – is going to prison. As has learned from Fox News, the 19-year-old will spend at least six years behind bars for the reckless and fatal crime.

On February 8, the California native was charged with gross vehicular manslaughter, DUI and child endangerment, among other things. She was convicted after police saw the Instagram livestream she shared of the car accident.

At the time, Obdulia was behind the wheel of the vehicle while her sister Jacqueline Sanchez and another female friend rode in the back seat. The troubled teen was driving drunk at the time, and lost control of the car while filming a video of the three girls.

After the crash, Obdulia got out to check on Jacqueline, 14, who was bleeding from her head and had sustained multiple serious injuries. Despite seeing her despair, Obdulia continued to film Jacqueline until she died in her arms.

I killed my sister,” she said in the chilling livestream. “I know I’m going to prison, but I don’t care.”

Later, after she was arrested and made to watch the video once more, Obdulia told authorities: “I didn’t even know I looked like a monster—like I look like a freaking horrible monster. That was not my intention at all. That was not my intention at all.”

Now, she will spend the next years of her life in prison.
