LITHONIA, Ga. -- A 44-year-old woman who hit and killed a child in a DeKalb County crosswalk in 2009 begins her prison sentence Wednesday.

Shirley Ogilvie was convicted of second-degree vehicular homicide and failure to yield in the Feb. 2, 2009 death of 7-year-old Kameron Dunmore, who was killed after being hit at the intersection of South Deshon Road and Wildwood Trace in Lithonia.

Ogilvie was sentenced to one year in jail in September 2010. Her conviction was overturned in November 2011, but the Supreme Court of Georgia reinstated it in November 2012, according to DeKalb County Solicitor General Sherry Boston.

"We are pleased to see justice served in this tragic case," Boston said in a statement. "Kameron Dunmore, who was walking to school that morning, should be here with us today. We hope this will serve as a reminder to all drivers to be careful at our crosswalks and in school zones."
