ELKINS, W.Va. (AP) – West Virginia State Police say a Pennsylvania woman has been charged in an accident that killed two people, including a 7-week-old girl.

State Police in Elkins arrested 28-year-old Janel Sturm of Baden, on two counts of driving under the influence causing death and one count of child neglect resulting in death.

State Police tell WBOY-TV that Sturm is accused of having methamphetamine and other controlled substances in her system at the time of the Oct. 28 accident. The accident on U.S. Route 250 in Barbour County killed 29-year-old Travis Felton of Belington and his daughter, Raele Felton.

Sturm was arraigned in Randolph County Magistrate Court and was being held Thursday in Tygart Valley Regional jail on $150,000 bond. Jail records didn’t indicate whether Sturm has an attorney.
