Deanna Holleran, 26, of Newtown, Mo., is charged with second-degree murder,  three counts of assault, tampering with a motor vehicle and leaving the scene of an accident in connection to the September crash at 9th and Hardesty. 30-year-old Mariana Hernandez–Gonzales was killed in the crash.


Mariana Hernandez-Gonzales was killed in a crash at 9th and Hardesty on September 15, 2015.

Prosecutors say Holleran ran a red light before hitting an Hernandez-Gonzales' SUV. Police said at the time the family was caught in a gun battle between two cars.

Court records show that Holleran was served a warrant on Tuesday, but no court dates are listed for her yet. Prosecutors have requested she be held on a $500,000 bond.
