Driver Indicted In 7-Year-Old Boston Girl's Death

A woman accused of killing a 7-year-old Boston girl and seriously injuring her mother while driving drunk has been indicted on a new charge of manslaughter by motor vehicle.

The Suffolk County district attorney announced Thursday 36-year-old Olivia Mora could face five to 20 years in prison.

Prosecutors say Mora's speeding SUV hit a parked car Nov. 26, jumped a curb, hit a fire hydrant and struck Brianna Rosales and her mother.

Mora pleaded not guilty in district court last year to charges including motor vehicle homicide while operating under the influence and operating under the influence causing serious bodily injury. Those charges are among those in the Wednesday indictment moving her case to superior court. Mora's lawyer said at her November arraignment she had medical issues.

A new arraignment hasn't been scheduled.
