The 18-year-old Stockton woman who live-streamed a crash near Los Banos that killed her teen sister pleaded no contest Tuesday to gross vehicular manslaughter, DUI, child endangerment charges and several enhancements.

Obdulia Sanchez appeared Tuesday morning in Merced Superior Court for a trial setting conference. But she pleaded no contest to the felony charges after several meetings between her Merced County public defender, Ramnik Samrao, and Merced County Deputy District Attorney Tom Min.
