PHOENIX (AP) - A Phoenix woman is accused of second-degree murder after a rollover crash killed her daughter on Interstate 10 near Marana.

Arizona Department of Public Safety investigators allege that 38-year-old Irma Linda Martinez was driving impaired on Jan. 4 when her car rolled.

Martinez’s 16-year-old daughter and 18-year-old son were critically injured in the crash and the teenage girl later died at a Tucson hospital.

DPS officials say Martinez’s son wasn’t wearing a seat belt, but her daughter was properly restrained.

Martinez has been booked into the Pima County Jail. It was unclear Monday if she has a lawyer yet.
