GRAND FORKS (WDAZ-TV) - A Grand Forks woman charged with manslaughter after a three-vehicle crash on Gateway Drive is back in jail.
26-year-old Ebony Miles has failed to comply with the 24-7 program twice since her release on bond.
Miles failed on March 23 with a reading of point .049. She also failed Tuesday morning with a BAC reading of point .028.
Miles was booked with failure to comply with the 24-7 program. Miles was ordered to participate in the 24-7 Sobriety Program as a condition of her release.
That program requires breath testing twice each day.
Miles ran a stop sign at the intersection of the frontage road south of the Budget Inn Express and Gateway Drive at about 5:07 p.m. on February 8. She struck a vehicle driven by Raymond Umphrey, 64, of Inkster. His vehicle spun around and was hit on the driver's side by another vehicle.
Raymond's wife, Florence, was in the passenger seat and had severe injuries from the collision. The couple was taken to Altru Hospital and Raymond was released that night. According to an affidavit of probable cause filed on March 9, Florence suffered a fractured second cervical vertebrae and had a closed head injury that caused bleeding around her brain. She died at Altru on February 16.
An autopsy was performed and found Umphrey died from the injuries she sustained in the crash.
After the crash, Miles drove her damaged vehicle into the Budget Inn Express parking lot and, according to a manager, had to climb out of the passenger side of the car.
Police searched around the hotel and arrested Miles about a half hour later.
Manslaughter is a Class B felony, punishable by up to 10 years in prison, a $10,000 fine or both.
