A Springfield woman who prosecutors say killed two people in an auto accident last month will stand trial after being indicted by a Sangamon County grand jury on Thursday.
Twenty-seven-year-old Andrea Little faces eleven counts, including four counts of aggravated DUI, possession of marijuana, and various driving offenses.
Little and two passengers were involved in a two-vehicle accident on October 25th on Route 125 in Pleasant Plains. One of those passengers, 35-year-old Steven Moore of Jacksonville, died, as did the driver of the other vehicle, 16-year-old Danielle Allen of Pleasant Plains.
Prosecutors say Little’s blood-alcohol content was more than three times the legal limit, plus she had marijuana in her system.
“We will be seeking a very lengthy sentence. This is a tragic case. My thoughts and prayers go out to the victim’s families who have to deal with this,” Sangamon County State’s Attorney John Milhiser told our reporting partners at WICS ABC Newschannel 20.
“Because of this defendant’s actions, she’s looking at a very long prison sentence. We’ll continue to work with the State Police to make sure that we have the best case possible.”
Little faces six to 28 years if she is convicted under the aggravated DUI statute. She has a previous DUI conviction, getting court supervision after pleading guilty in 2012.
Little has not pleaded guilty in this case. Her trial begins January 20th.
