MENLO PARK, Calif. (AP) - Arraignment has been postponed for a woman charged with driving drunk and killing a San Francisco Bay Area couple out walking their dog.
San Mateo County prosecutors say 54-year-old Marjorie Reitzell complained of chest pains, and was not cleared to appear in court Tuesday.
Reitzell faces two counts each of gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated and felony DUI in connection with last week's crash, which killed 45-year-old Kamal Singh and 50-year-old Balbir Singh.
Authorities say the couple was walking their dog in the bike lane of a Menlo Park street when they were struck from behind by Reitzell.
Reitzell has a previous misdemeanor drunken driving conviction. Her brother, Ronald, told reporters she had a mental breakdown while trying to stay sober. He said she does not remember the crash
