A Victoria woman has been charged in the death of Yukon rapper Reid Parent.

Parent, 25, died in a car crash on Salt Spring Island, B.C., in November 2010.

Laura Rann, who was also 25 at the time, was behind the wheel. She lost control of the vehicle and crashed into a tree.

Rann, who was taken to the hospital and treated for non-life-threatening injuries, has now been charged with dangerous driving causing death. If found guilty, Rann could face up to 14 years in jail.

Rann appeared in a B.C. court this week. The case was adjourned until March 7, 2012.

RCMP will not discuss the case further and declined say whether speed or alcohol were factors in the crash.
