    The daughter of a woman slain by a drugged driver lashed out at her mother's killer during sentencing on Monday.

    Back in May, Becky Marie Anderson pleaded guilty to gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated. She was under the influence of prescription drugs last November when she hit and killed 36-year-old Kristen Ann Bedard, according to police. Anderson will spend the next 16 years in prison.

    The single mother of two was walking to work when she died

    "I hate you so much," Bedard's father, Rick, said in court, reading a letter to Anderson from his 13-year-old granddaughter. "I want you to die in jail and I never want to see your face again."

    Bedard was walking to work on Community Road near Aubrey Street in Poway just after 7 a.m. on Nov. 24 when Anderson's vehicle jumped onto the sidewalk and hit her. Her body was later found more than 40 feet from the intersection near a power box.

    Bedard died immediately, according to the county's medical examiner.

    "Kristie's life had worth, yours doesn't," Rick Bedard told the court. "You are now officially another burden to society."

    Anderson was alone in the car and visibly distraught at the scene of the accident, deputies said at the time.
