Grand Jury Will Decide On Upgraded Charge For Jailed Tyler Woman

  Travis County's Assistant District Attorney says they're leaving it up to the grand jury to determine if 61-year-old Mary Dodgen should be indicted on intoxicated manslaughter. No word when the case will go before them. Last Monday, police say Dodgen was driving drunk in Austin when she hit five pedestrians leaving a concert venue. Yesterday one of the victims, Jeff Wilson, died from brain injuries. Another pedestrian remains in the hospital. Intoxication manslaughter is a second degree felony, along with the three aggravated assault charges against Dodgen. She also faces one additional count of intoxication assault.
