SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - A 16-year-old girl accused of killing two people in a nearly 100-mph crash on her way to a suicide pact has appeared in court.

The Ogden Standard-Examiner reports (https://bit.ly/29hLNHj ) the Layton teenager is facing two counts of murder and could face a 15 years-to-life prison sentence on each if convicted.

The Associated Press is not naming the girl because she’s a minor. She is due back in court July 27.

Her lawyer Walter Bugden says the teen is very frightened.

Police say she was headed to meet a friend so they could take drugs and crash the car together when she slammed into another car in a 45 mph zone in Roy.

The crash killed 20-year-old Maddison Haan of West Point and 19-year-old Tyler Christianson of Ogden.
