The woman authorities say backed over a 2-year-old child in Pender County last Saturday, who later died from injuries, is now facing a new charge from this weekend for drinking and driving.
Our Wilmington affiliate WECT said 28-year-old Stevie Wallace was arrested for DWI over the weekend and jailed under a $50,000 bond.
Last weekend, troopers said Wallace backed over 2-year-old Carter Gilson in Pender County.
This is Wallace's second DWI in seven days, according to WECT.
