Intent matters not at all when it comes to stuff like this. Case and point, 2 drunk drivers who got pulled over, 1 after he had a wreck and killed someone. Studies have shown that the 2nd guy is seen as more evil even though the level of intent is the same between the 2. Life in prison? Nah, she didn't intend to kill anyone, but she does deserve punishment due to the loss of life that was her fault. She messed up, she must face the consequences.
