CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - A judge has set a trial date for a girl accused of using inhalants before she crashed into the Wyoming Medical Center in Casper, killing her two passengers.

The Casper Star-Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/14lcN6j ) Jessica Carnline’s trial is scheduled to begin April 6. She has pleaded not guilty to two counts of aggravated vehicular homicide in the Sept. 21 crash that killed Brandon Avery and Amanda Strickland, both 27.

Carnline was 17 at the time of the crash but is being tried as an adult.

Prosecutors say she had chemicals in her blood consistent with those found in canned air duster and is estimated to have been traveling 76 mph. There is no indication she hit the brakes.

Carnline was released from juvenile detention a few hours before the crash.
