Police in Manitowoc County have arrested a 43-year-old woman on charges tied to a fatal crash that claimed the lives of three people. Manitowoc County Sheriff Robert Hermann says Becky Holly was picked up on an arrest warrant Wednesday, after she was released from the hospital.
Holly is accused of being drunk behind the wheel of a van on October 13th, when she allegedly lost control of the vehicle and crashed into three people in the town of Kossuth who were watching a roofing project.

Holly appeared in court Wednesday, with bail set as a $100,000 personal recognizance bond. She was also placed on electronic monitoring and ordered not to drink or drive.
Hermann says tests found Holly had a blood alcohol content of .209, more than twice the legal limit.
She faces eight felony charges, including three counts of homicide by intoxicated use of a vehicle. Holly is due back in court for a preliminary hearing on November 28th.
