Texas Teen Accused of Killing 2 in Car Race Has Bail Set at $1 Million
KILLEEN, Texas (AP) — Bond has been set at $1 million for a Central Texas teenager who police say was one of two drivers acing along a roadway when the teen's car broadsided another vehicle, killing two people.
Bond was set Friday for 17-year-old Alexis Jillian Woods during an initial court appearance. She's being held in the Bell County jail on a manslaughter charge.
The Killeen Daily Herald reports Woods and another teen were racing at speeds in excess of 100 mph in November when Woods' Chevy Camaro struck a Ford Taurus.
The two occupants of the Taurus, 60-year-old Michael Lockett of Chicago and 66-year-old Francine Winbush of Killeen, were killed.
Online jail records did not indicate an attorney for Woods.
The second teenager is charged with racing on a highway causing death.
