Raleigh woman charged with second-degree murder for DWI death

Posted on July 3rd, 2013 No Comments

On June 25, a Wake County grand jury indicted a Raleigh resident on a second-degree murder charge in connection to the driving while impaired-related death of a Bailey woman, who died in a crash five months ago.

Twenty-nine-year-old Lydia Marie Mills of 4104 Labrador Drive in Raleigh was driving her vehicle near her house at around 2:30 a.m. on January 30 when she lost her grip on the steering wheel of her sport-utility vehicle, crashed into a tree, and consequently got stuck in a ditch, police investigators said. Mills’ passenger, Amanda Brooke Massengill, died in the accident.

Mills was charged with felony death by motor vehicle and driving while impaired initially earlier in the case.

According to a statement made by Wake County Assistant District Attorney Jason Waller on June 26, the new evidence recently found warranted the upgrade of the charge to second-degree murder.
