A singer who traveled with Little Mix has been jailed for eight months to kill a three-mom mother-in-law in a car accident.
Nadine Samuels, who supported Little Mix on her Salute 2014 tour with her MO girl band, could not watch while she was in a roundabout and crashed into Debbie Mills while riding a bicycle at Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire.
The 54-year-old man suffered traumatic brain injuries when he was thrown into the windshield and the road.
He died shortly thereafter at the hospital.
Samuels was sentenced to eight months' imprisonment in St Albans Crown Court after pleading guilty to death by neglected maneuver.
The 27-year-old singer, who is a good friend of Little Mix's member, Leigh-Anne Pinnock, wept while giving her her conviction.
Josh, Debbie's pastry shop, later paid homage to her.
He described his mother as a valuable member of the community and said he had taken cycling as a hobby.
He said: "We'll lose it very well," reports The Sun.
Debbie's husband, Kevin, added: "We had been married for almost 25 years. We had our first vacations together without the children.
"We had planned to do so much together. We suffered so much since Debbie died. Her life has been taken from us."
Samuels had been driving to A414 on March 21 when he hit Debbie at a speed of up to 26 mph.
The mother had a protective helmet, but unfortunately she could not be saved after being transferred to the hospital.
Samuels stopped to call 999, but was so afflicted that a member of the public had to enter and finish the call.
When he was interrogated by the police, he said he had looked to his right but did not see anything as he approached the roundabout in the outer lane.
Martin Mulgrew, in prosecution, said: "The accused completely failed to verify the road ahead, it became clear. Other road users stopped."
The court also heard that Samuels had written to Debbie's family after the accident.
His lawyer, Simon Gledhill, said he was unfamiliar with the route and that he had trusted in his navigation when Debbie crashed.
Judge Michael Kay QC delivered the sentence to prison and also banned Samuels from the roads for two years and four months.
He said: "You have not seen Mrs. Mills. You did not stop and you've stuck with the bicycle and she was eliminated. Very tragically she died of her injuries.
"You stopped and you were distracted and you heard repeat:" I have not seen, I did not see it. "
"There is nothing that I can say or do, that it can restore a life to a distressed family. I get a heart."
Samuels has been a member of MO since 2012.
