A former reality TV star was sentenced to 16 years in prison for killing a U.S. Coast Guard technician in a wrong-way collision on a Virginia highway. Melissa Hancock was sentenced Wednesday after earlier pleading guilty to manslaughter, driving the wrong way, failing to obey a highway sign and DUI.
Hancock appeared on Lifetime’s “Little Women: Atlanta.” Daniel Dill was a Logan Township, New Jersey, native who was stationed in Portsmouth, Virginia, as an information systems technician.
Virginia State Police said Hancock struck Dill head-on around 2 a.m. Nov. 4 on Interstate 264. He died of his injuries the next day.
