UPDATE:  Misty Combs was arraigned this morning on aggravated vehicular homicide charges in a Clermont County Courtroom.  The judge ordered held on a 25,000 dollar bond and she cannot drive a vehicle.  Misty is scheduled to return to court on February 18th for a pre-trial hearing on these charges.

BETHEL, OH (FOX19) -- A Cincinnati Woman faces multiple charges after a January crash kills her passenger.

The Clermont County Grand Jury has indicted 27-year-old Misty Combs on two counts of Aggravated Vehicular Homicide, two counts of Operating a Vehicle while Intoxicated, and one count of Driving under a Licence Suspension.

On January 9th at 12:40am, Combs and her passenger, 42-year-old Todd Reed, were doing doughnuts in a snow covered field at the 2100 block of State Route 133.

Misty Combs lost control of the vehicle and slid into a tree. Todd Reed was seriously injured and died from his injuries while he was being air-lifted to the hospital.

An investigation discovered that Misty Combs had been consuming alcohol and using marijuana earlier in the day. Her blood alcohol level was 0.18; over double the legal limit in Ohio.

Combs is currently serving time in the Clermont County jail for prior charges in an unrelated hit-and-run traffic crash in October of last year.

An arraignment hearing will be scheduled later this week.
