Woman sentenced to 35 years to life in fatal hit and run

WHITE PLAINS – A woman, who has been bedridden and on a feeding tube and trach collar in the infirmary at Bedford Hills Correctional Facility was sentenced on Wednesday to a total of 35 years to life in state prison as the result of a fatal hit and run incident in White Plains back in 2008.

Sheldene Campbell, 42, of 16 Ormian Drive in Pomona, was convicted following a jury trial of murder, attempted murder, attempted assault, and leaving the scene of an incident without reporting it.

On October 19, 2008 at about 11 a.m., she struck and injured a woman who was walking her dog near 205 Havilands Drive in White Plains.  The vehicle, which was traveling on the wrong side of the road, continued at a high rate of speed and struck Marie Bucci, who was out for a walk. She died as a result.

In December 2011, Campbell was found to be not competent for sentencing on her conviction following a mental competency exam.  On June 26 of this year, she was found to be competent for Wednesday’s bedside sentencing.
