A 93-year-old Oberon, ND woman who authorities say hit two motorcycles with her car, resulting in the death of a pregnant woman, will plead guilty to misdemeanor driving charges Tuesday.

Faith Mitzel is changing her plea to guilty November 30. Mitzel is charged in Ramsey County with driving under suspension and not having insurance. That comes after her license was pulled by the state this summer after she was involved in a deadly accident in May in Benson County. A motorcycle passenger was killed and two others were injured. Mitzel received a ticket in that crash. Families of those involved in that crash are suing Mitzel for $200,000 in damages.

The prosecution had said they will ask for the maximum punishment of 60 days in jail.
