Miranda Lalla, 50, pleaded not guilty Tuesday to vehicular homicide, a Class-B felony.

Lalla was originally charged June 18 with second-offense OWI after allegedly running over Pamela Gross, 44, with her truck.

Police responded to 315 E. First St. on June 18 after receiving a report of a motor-vehicle accident with an injury. According to a police complaint, Lalla drove Gross home from a bar and, after an alleged physical fight, attempted to leave. While backing the truck up, Lalla reportedly knocked Gross over with an open door and ran her over, resulting in her death.

A trial has not yet been set for Lalla.
