EASTON — Barbara Marie Sellner, 41, of Centreville, pleaded guilty in Talbot County Circuit Court on Tuesday, July 12 to negligent manslaughter and two counts of driving while under the influence of alcohol with a minor in the car.

Her charges stem from a single-vehicle crash on Jan. 4, 2016, that led to the death of her son. Ethan Alexander Sellner, 3, succumbed to his injuries Jan. 20.

Ethan also is survived by his father, five siblings and his grandparents.

Troopers from the Maryland State Police Easton Barracks responded at about 12:48 p.m. Jan. 4 to the crash. Sellner, traveling north on Cordova Road in a Chrysler minivan, crossed the center line and hit a tree, state police said.

The people around them do. There is no excuse for this and addiction is not an illness, its a weakness.
