Woman Jailed For Allowing Party Before Son’s Death

A 39-year-old Burlington woman accused of letting her son drink with his friends at her house before he was killed in a car crash has been sentenced to five days in jail.

The Powell Tribune  reported Tuesday that Judge Thomas Harrington sentenced Donna Marie Burke Brunko after she pleaded no contest to allowing the house party before the March 11 death of 17-year-old Tylor Burke. A plea deal dismisses a negligent homicide charge if Brunko completes a year of probation. In total, she must serve a year and a half of probation and pay $340.

Prosecutors say that after leaving the home and going to a serving room, Burke’s friends placed him, apparently drunk, in the driver’s seat of a running car. He was found dead the next morning near an intersection north of Burlington.
