Alexander Burke, 31, admitted to driving drunk and running a red light on Lake Avenue, causing him to slam into a vehicle on Union Street killing 47-year-old Isabel Batista on Nov. 29, 2015.

He was charged with negligent homicide charges among others.

Burke was sentenced to six to 12 years in NH state prison. Before trial, Burke spent 342 days in jail which will count towards his sentence.

He also must complete anger management, counseling, remain on good behavior, 1,000 hours of community service with a charity, and restitution within 60 days along with a hearing within 30 days.

Burke's license was revoked indefinitely, and he can not reapply for seven years. A license can not be reinstated until an interlock device (blower) is installed into his car, which will be used for five years.

He is also not allowed to contact victims including any third party contact.
