A Brainerd woman has been sentenced to more than four years in prison for a crash that killed a bicyclist in northern Minnesota last year.
    
Twenty-four-year-old Kerri Marie Zelinske earlier pleaded guilty to criminal vehicular homicide in the October 2013 death of Leonard Grabowski. The 57-year-old Brainerd man was biking in the Cass County community of East Gull Lake when he was struck.
    
Zelinske admitted she had been drinking before she crossed the center line and struck Grabowski.
    
District Court Judge David Harrington sentenced Zelinske to 50 months in prison Tuesday, which is at the lowest end of sentencing guidelines.
