    Leann Selkirk, seen here with her husband, was killed in a car crash in April 2007. Alberto Espinosa, the driver of the dump truck that jackknifed and landed on her car, has been convicted in her death.

    A Collin County man was found guilty Friday of causing a car accident more than five years ago that killed a kindergarten teacher and her unborn child.

    Leeann Selkirk was 18 weeks pregnant when a dump truck jack-knifed and landed on her car.

    A jury convicted the truck driver, Alberto Espinosa, of one count of criminally negligent homicide.

    Selkirk was killed in April 2007 as she drove to work.

    The case went to trial after five years of court delays, new judges and five prosecutors.

    Selkirk's husband, Alex, told NBC 5 in May that he was frustrated by the delays. He said then that he still saw Espinosa around town.

    "I see him almost every day driving down the road, and that's hard to see him and know what he took from me," he said.
