RED DEER, Alta. - A central Alberta woman convicted of impaired driving and killing two teenage boys has been denied full parole.

April Gail Beauclair, who is 31, cried through much of her hearing in front of the parole board Monday, as did the families of the victims of the fatal March 2012 collision.

Parole Board of Canada said in its decision that Beauclair needs to continue the structural support of her current day parole, which is up on Dec. 12.

A review will take place sometime before then.

Darren and Brandee Keeler both read heartbreaking victim impact statements at the hearing.

Their son Colton and his friend Tyson Vanderzwaag were killed when Beauclair's car crashed into their vehicle that had broken down on Highway 11-A and was being pushed from behind.

Beauclair was sentenced to 3 1/2 years in prison.
