A woman faced multiple charges Thursday in connection with a crash that killed two people in Stamford.
Police say Felicia Burl, 32, is accused of leaving the scene of an accident and manslaughter. Police say Burl was driving a Nissan Altima when she ran a red light and crashed the car into a BMW on Alvord Lane last month.
An arrest warrant says the Nissan belonged to Nixon Henry, who was the passenger at the time and died in the crash. It says Henry was half inside the car and half out, hanging onto the passenger door when Burl crashed.
A 70-year-old woman, who was a passenger in the BMW, also died. Her husband was critically injured.
The warrant says detectives found Burl's DNA on the steering wheel airbag at the crash scene, then tracked her down to an address in Stamford. Police say she has had 25 convictions in the past 15 years.
Prosecutors said Thursday that the details of the case are concerning and disturbing. Burl's attorney says it is still very early in the process to comment on the case.
The judge kept her bond at $500,000 and set her next court date for Jan. 6.
