NEWPORT (AP) — A judge has reduced bail for a New Hampshire woman charged with driving drunk in a Claremont crash that killed a Goshen woman.
The Valley News reports a Newport judge on Wednesday reduced 36-year-old Amber King's bail to $2,500 cash. King has been held on $50,000 bail since her April arrest.
She faces charges of aggravated driving while intoxicated and negligent homicide.
Authorities say the Claremont woman lost control of her Jeep Grand Cherokee on April 23 and the car overturned and rolled several times. They say 32-year-old Amanda Grasso was ejected from the car into the Sugar River. She was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital.
Police say King's husband and another person were hospitalized with serious injuries.
Messages left for King's attorney weren't immediately returned.
