Alaskan Stoned Killer Gets Three Years

In 2005, Timothy Wood got high on pot and then got behind the wheel of his Chevy Blazer. He crossed over the center line, and killed 53 year old Diane Bahnson. Blood tests showed that he had THC in his system, but the judge in the case ruled that due to a technical error with the blood test, he could only be convicted of negligent homicide, instead of second degree murder.

The stoner admitted his wrong-doing, and apologized to the family for killing Diane. His guilt is not in question. The judge gave him a slap on the wrist for killing a woman, based on a technical issue.

What in the hell is going on in Alaska?
