The trial for a woman accused of running over and killing a bicyclist in Fabens nearly 5 years ago started Monday.

Prosecutors said Araceli Nava was drunk when she killed Gustavo Vega, 47 back in August 2009. She's charged with intoxication manslaughter. Deputies said Nava told them she'd been drinking all night and into the early morning hours.

If convicted, Nava faces up to 20 years in prison.
