LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- The Kentucky Supreme Court has upheld the conviction and 35-year sentence of a Louisville woman who ran over an 11-year-old boy who was riding his bicycle.
 
   The high court on Thursday rejected several arguments brought by 33-year-old Angela Baumia, who was convicted in Jefferson County in 2010.
 
   A jury found Baumia guilty of murder, first-degree wanton endangerment, criminal mischief and drunken driving in the June 26, 2010 death of Dylan Geitgey. Prosecutors say Geitgey was thrown 69 feet after being struck by Baumia's car.
 
   Prosecutors say Baumia had a blood alcohol level of between .23 and .26 -- roughly three times the legal limit -- at the time of the collision.
