AUSTIN -- Former EMT Terri Elmore, who is accused of killing a pastor and his wife while driving drunk, will go to trial on Jan. 29.

She is charged with two counts of intoxication manslaughter.

In November 2011, Elmore hit pastor Jackson Boyett and his wife, Barbara, on Highway 290 West near the "Y" in Oak Hill. Police said her blood alcohol level was twice the legal limit.

A judge revoked her bond in September after the interlock system on her vehicle detected alcohol five times in 11 months. Her attorney blamed the alcohol detection on Elmore's use of mouthwash. She was released from jail again a few days later, and a judge ordered that she undergo counseling.
