The case of the 21-year-old from Pitt County charged with 2nd degree murder in connection to the death of another 21-year-old was continued again Thursday.

Carla Atallah was set to appear in Pitt County court on murder and DWI charges but the case was continued until August 16th.

Authorities say Atallah was behind the wheel in September of last year when she crashed on Worthington road.

Her passenger, Ryan Worthington, was thrown from the vehicle and killed. At the time, Atallah's license was revoked.

    The real criminals are the ones who gave her the keys, and access, to the car she drove that night, knowing she had already had her license revoked due to a DUI. The parents are definitely guilty of accessory to the crime. But hey folks, they have to live with Ryan's untimely death. I do not think they will enjoy that memory too much, if they are of any moral fiber.

    TO opencarry...AMEN!!! She deserves to pay for what she did. Any other person who was charged with murder would already be behind bars not living it up at an "intensive rehab center". We all know that that was done for her to look like she is healed and it can't bring back the wonderful person that she took away. she shouldn't have been driving anyways but obviously had no respect for the legal system as she had gotten her way out of everything else...hopefully NOT this time! Justice needs to be served!!

    When a death occurs as the result of a DUI (ESPECIALLY a repeat-offender DUI) it should be a CAPITAL OFFENSE. No plea. No Parole. No excuses. End of discussion.

    Enough is enough. It's been almost a year. She's guilty as can be. I agree the parents should shoulder some of the blame. They gave a drunk the keys to their car knowing she already had D.U.I.'s.

    Carla is a nice girl. Ive known her for years. She never ment for that to happen. She needs help and encouragement right now. I know she already feels bad enough about the situation. Ryan and her used to date so im sure she feels worse about this than anybody. Nothing can bring Ryan back but if everybody learns from this Ryan didnt die in vain.

    She has a right to a speedy trial, lets get her to the electric chair, no need to drag this thing out for years. Ryan and his Family need Justice. She was wrong when she got behind the wheel for the third forth or ever how many times. Its a sad shame it took a life for her to maybe wake up! I am glad i don't have to live with killing one of my friends over something as stupid as this! There was intent to kill in my opinion she knew she should not be driving drunk! Shame on anyone who defends her!

    I really have to guess here that they are going to wait for her to kill someone else then maybe they will give her the punishment she deserves but probably not knowing pitt countys court system she'll get a slap on the wrist and let go to kill someone else

    Anonymous that is so untrue. I don't see how you can sleep at night when you say stuff like that. What she did was wrong but there was no intent to kill. Shame on you!

    When she drove drunk, she did intend to kill someone the way all drunk drivers do.
