A 58-year-old Burnet woman pleaded guilty to murder on Sept. 7 in the 2022 drunk driving death of a 21-year-old Bertram man. Nila Louise Glimp was sentenced to 23 years in prison by Judge Donna King in a 26th Judicial District courtroom in Williamson County.
On April 2, 2022, Glimp was traveling on Texas 29 about 3 miles northwest of Liberty Hill when she struck a vehicle being driven in the opposite direction by Kevin Scott Beall. Texas Department of Public Safety officers measured Glimp’s blood-alcohol level at 0.09, which is over the 0.08 legal limit for Texas drivers.
Glimp was originally charged with intoxication manslaughter, a second-degree felony. The charge was bumped up to first-degree felony murder due to her past convictions of driving while intoxicated. She pleaded guilty to DWI in March 2004 in Williamson County and June 2015 in Burnet County.
