Vehicular homicide and DUI charges against a Murfreesboro woman accused of running over a young teen on I-24 were bound over to the grand jury in General Sessions Court today.

Tina Wilson, 33, is charged with hitting and killing Clifton Braunwalder, 13, as he changed the tire of his mother’s car alongside the interstate in mid-April.

Testimony in court Friday showed she had drugs in her system the day she allegedly hit the youngster and left the scene of the crash. A witness testified he followed Wilson’s vehicle and called authorities, who notified the Tennessee Highway Patrol. Wilson was said to be intoxicated when she was stopped.

The child’s mother was also hit by Wilson, according to testimony, but she survived the crash. The boy’s sister was uninjured in the incident.

In addition to vehicular homicide and DUI, Wilson faces other charges, including leaving the scene of a crime.

Wilson had been held without bond, but following a hearing today, General Sessions Judge David Loughry set bond at $250,000 with the requirement that she wear a GPS device if she makes bond.

Testimony during the bond hearing showed she is a two-time convicted felon, once for armed robbery.
