Bar bragging tips police to decade-old slaying

PORTLAND, Ore. -- An Oregon woman overheard in a Canadian bar bragging about getting away with killing someone in a 1997 drunken-driving accident has been returned to the United States to face manslaughter charges.
Jean Keating is being held in custody in Linn County.
She is accused of first-degree manslaughter in connection with the April 13, 1997 death of 65-year-old Jewel Anderson.
Police say Keating, then 38, sideswiped Anderson's car on I-5 near Albany, Ore., sending it careening through the center lane and into another car. Anderson died at the scene.
Keating fled while awaiting trial.
Police were tipped in early 2013 that Keating was apparently talking about the crash in Manitoba, Canada.
Using information from a Canadian drunken-driving arrest, Manitoba police used her fingerprints to match it to a U.S. database.
