NEWPORT, N.H. (AP) - A judge has reduced bail for a New Hampshire woman charged with driving drunk in a Claremont crash that killed a Goshen woman.

The Valley News reports (https://bit.ly/1TX8fq9 ) a Newport judge on Wednesday reduced 36-year-old Amber King’s bail to $2,500 cash. King has been held on $50,000 bail since her April arrest.

She faces charges of aggravated driving while intoxicated and negligent homicide.

Police say King’s husband and another person were hospitalized with serious injuries.
