MERRILL, WI (WTAQ) - Ashley Baumann was found guilty Tuesday of causing a high speed drunk driving crash that killed two of her friends in Merrill.  

A Lincoln County jury deliberated about five hours late Monday and 45 minutes Tuesday morning before handing down its verdicts.  

The 26-year-old Baumann was convicted on all seven charges the state brought to trial. They dropped two others just before the trial began just over a week ago.  

The jury agreed with prosecutors that Baumann was the one who drove close to 100 miles an hour before flipping her van into a field in June of 2012 -- killing Misty Glisch and Jessica Hartwig.  

Jurors did not buy the defense claim that the only other survivor of the crash, Jerrica Woller, was actually the driver.

A sentencing date for Baumann was not immediately set. That could happen at a scheduling conference that's set for Thursday morning.
