A woman with a prior DUI conviction who struck and killed a Menlo Park couple walking their dog in 2013 was sentenced to 30 years to life in prison Wednesday, prosecutors said.
The Menlo Park Police Department announced Wednesday that it is seeking a specific witness who may have watched a grisly fatal drunken driving accident last month that claimed the lives of a Menlo Park couple out walking their dog.
Marjorie Reitzell first complained of chest pains on Monday and was not cleared to appear in San Mateo County Superior Court again on Tuesday, San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe said.
A Redwood City woman suspected of striking two people Thursday in Menlo Park as they walked their dog has a prior drunk driving conviction from 2012, according to San Mateo County court records.
Two people walking a dog were struck from behind and killed by a suspected drunken driver in Menlo Park Thursday night, a police commander said.
