SAMMAMISH, Wash. (AP) - The woman accused of crashing a car through a home while under the influence of alcohol and a sleep aid pleaded not guilty Thursday in Seattle to vehicular homicide charges in the deaths of her husband and son-in-law.

Carol Fedigan had her grandson on her lap at the time of the crash last May at the waterfront home on Lake Sammamish that also injured her daughter. Fedigan also pleaded not guilty to charges of vehicular assault and reckless endangerment.

If the 68-year-old is convicted she could face more than 10 years in prison.

Charging documents say she had been drinking wine and had taken the prescription sleep aid Ambien before trying to move her SUV. She accelerated instead of braking, ramming the car through the house into the water.
