Trial Continued In Drunk Driving Fatality Case

A trial for the Pitt County young woman lawmen say drove drunk and caused a wreck that killed her friend has been continued. It was scheduled to start Monday.

Carla Atallah, 22, pleaded not guilty just over a year ago for the Sept. 2009 drunk driving crash. She faces a second degree murder charge in the death of Ryan Worthington. The 21-year-old man was a passenger in the car Atallah was driving.

Lawmen said Atallah's license had been revoked before the crash and the woman had two pending DWI charges along with a hit and run charge. Atallah's case has been continued several times and was once again Monday.

Her next court date is now set for February 27th.
