Sequoyah Collins was arraigned for a murder charge, and she entered a not guilty plea.

Collins is also facing two counts of assault, three counts of wanton endangerment and DUI.

Lexington police say Collins had a .211 blood-alcohol content and cocaine in her system when she was driving double the speed limit on Tates Creek Road in the early morning hours of July 5. Her vehicle crashed into another vehicle, killing 10-year-old Alexia Gomez Hernandez. The blood test was conducted four hours after the crash.

Collins has two court dates scheduled in December.
