WAUKEGAN, Ill. (AP) - A suburban Chicago woman will be tried next week on charges of driving onto a sidewalk and killing a 5-year-old girl after inhaling computer dust cleaner.

Carly Rousso of Highland Park has pleaded not guilty in the September 2012 death of Jaclyn Santos-Sacaramento and the injury of the girl’s mother and two infant brothers.

After failed attempts to reach a plea deal, the trial of Rousso on a felony charge of aggravated DUI resulting in death is scheduled to begin Tuesday in Lake County Circuit Court.

Rousso and her attorney, Douglas Zeit, have opted for a bench trial before Judge James Booras.

Zeit said the trial will be short because much of the information in the case is not contested. Rousso is free on a $500,000 bond.
