MONTEVALLO, AL (WBRC) - A Montevallo woman faces two charges after the death of a University of Montevallo student because of an auto accident.

Montevallo Police tell FOX6 News and MyFoxAL.com that Diane Harris Stephens is charged with reckless murder and leaving the scene of an accident.  Harris was arrested Thursday, November 26.  Shelby County District Attorney Bill Bostick says the way Harris was driving proves that she has no regards to human life.  Harris' bond is set at $150,000.

18 year old University of Montevallo student Amy Elliott died Monday, November 23 from injuries sustained in the crash.
