PHOENIX - Authorities say a Phoenix woman who was out of jail on reduced bail while awaiting trial on second-degree murder and other charges in a fatal wrong-way DUI crash on a suburban freeway was arrested and charged in a second DUI wreck.

Delilah R. Castillo initially was arrested and jailed last August after being hospitalized for serious injuries from a July 30 that killed another driver.

Court records indicate the latest crash involving Castillo occurred Feb. 14 when her car rear-ended another vehicle on an Interstate 17 on-ramp in north Phoenix.

The Maricopa County Public Defender's Office, which represents Castillo, did not immediately return a call for comment.
