JEROME (AP) - A 17-year-old Boise girl has pleaded guilty to two counts of vehicular manslaughter for her role in a chain-reaction crash that killed two women who were traveling to Twin Falls to help with their father's funeral arrangements.

Shelby Seewald entered her plea to the juvenile charges Tuesday before Fifth District Judge Mark Ingram. He scheduled her sentencing for May 11.

Idaho State Police say Seewald was westbound on Interstate 84 near Jerome on Dec. 11 when her car sideswiped a pickup, which crossed the median into the eastbound lanes. The pickup truck struck a sport utility vehicle, killing the driver, 52-year-old Dixilyn Noh of Boise and her sister, 45-year-old Kristen Noh.

A funeral for the Nohs and their father was held later that month in Twin Falls.
