BAKERSFIELD - Closing arguments in the trial against a woman accused of causing a deadly accident while talking on her cell phone started Tuesday.
Authorities said that in April 2012, Anna Reynosa slammed her car into motorcyclist Charla Wilkins stopped at a red light.
Wilkins died as a result of the collision.
Reynosa was charged with vehicular manslaughter with gross negligence for using her cell phone.
Prosecutors originally offered a plea deal that would have imposed a maximum penalty of two years, but she rejected that offer.
