An Inola woman has been arrested for driving under the influence almost two years after a deadly crash.

Tanya Murray, 25, was booked into jail this week for an April 2013 wreck.

Troopers said she crashed into a guardrail on Interstate 44. A trooper on the scene said Murray first told emergency crews her boyfriend was in the wrecked car, but instead, there was a woman passenger.

The woman riding with Murray, 50-year-old Christina Rosalez, was hurt badly and died a week later. Court documents say Murray was intoxicated during the crash.

According to an affidavit, Murray's blood alcohol level was .33 and tested positive for cannabinoids after the crash.

She has been charged with first-degree manslaughter. She is being held at the Rogers County Jail in lieu of $125,000 bond.
