Crystal Boyett released from jail on bond

KOUNTZE - KFDM News has learned Crystal Boyett posted bond and was released from the Hardin County Jail Monday afternoon.

A correctional officer at the jail told KFDM a bonding company posted the $1.5 million bond and Boyett, 40, of Kirbyville, was released shortly before 2 p.m. Monday.

Boyett is charged with three counts of manslaughter in connection with a February 3 crash in Lumberton that killed Connely Burns, 20, Burns' unborn son and Burns' sister, Courtney Sterling, 15. Their mother was injured in the crash near where Highway 69 and 96 merge. Troopers say Boyett was in her Camaro traveling at more than 100 miles an hour in Lumberton prior to crashing into the family's SUV and they say she was clocked at about 150 miles an hour in Jasper County before she entered into Hardin County.

Sterling attended Lumberton High School. Her sister graduated from the school.

Lumberton Police Chief Danny Sullins tells KFDM News he's waiting for toxicology results from the DPS Crime Lab to determine if Boyett was intoxicated at the time of the crash.

If convicted of manslaughter Boyett could face 2-20 years in prison on each count.
