NASHUA, N.H. — A New Hampshire woman convicted of running down and killing a man with her car after he was said to have taunted her for being a New York Yankees fan has been sentenced to 20 to 40 years in prison.

Forty-five-year-old Ivonne Hernandez was convicted in December of second-degree murder in the death of 29-year-old Matthew Beaudoin in a Nashua parking lot.

Police say the dispute outside a bar started as an exchange about the Yankees and Red Sox.

Hernandez testified she was terrified because Beaudoin and others pounded on her windows when she made a comment about how many baseball World Series the Yankees had won compared to the Red Sox.

The Nashua Telegraph says the judge told Hernandez today that she had not taken full responsibility for her actions.

NASHUA, N.H. — A prosecutor has argued for at least 35 years in prison for a New Hampshire woman convicted of running down and killing a man after he was said to have taunted her for being a New York Yankees fan.

Assistant Attorney General Susan Morrell said today the crime is no different than if Ivonne Hernandez had shot 29-year-old Matthew Beaudoin with a gun in a Nashua parking lot in May 2008. WMUR-TV reported Morrell said Hernandez could have left, but decided to turn her car around and take aim.

Defense attorney William Schultz said Hernandez may have been confused.

Police have said the dispute outside a bar started as an exchange about the Yankees and Red Sox, when people in the crowd made comments such as “Yankees suck.”
