BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) - A 38-year-old woman has denied federal charges that allege she was driving drunk and caused a crash that killed a 69-year-old man.

The Billings Gazette reports (http://bit.ly/2kcQIAk ) Ethel Marie Brady of Muddy Cluster pleaded not guilty Monday to involuntary manslaughter for the Sept. 1 crash on U.S. Highway 212 near Lame Deer.

Federal prosecutors allege Brady’s car crossed the center line and collided with another car, killing the passenger, who was identified by the initials K.K. Rosebud County officials have said Kenneth Kania of Ashland died in the crash on the Northern Cheyenne Indian Reservation.

Brady also pleaded not guilty to assault resulting in serious bodily injury which also occurred on Sept. 1, but court records are not clear if that charge is related to injuries suffered by the driver of the other car.

U.S. Magistrate Timothy Cavan ordered Brady detained.
