Bond Set at $1M for Teen Accused of Killing 2 in Car Race

Bond has been set at $1 million for a Central Texas teenager who police say was one of two drivers racing along a roadway when the teen's car broadsided another vehicle, killing two people.

Bond was set Friday for 17-year-old Alexis Jillian Woods during an initial court appearance. She's being held in the Bell County jail on a manslaughter charge.

The Killeen Daily Herald reports Woods and another teen were racing at speeds in excess of 100 mph in November when Woods' Chevy Camaro struck a Ford Taurus.

The two occupants of the Taurus, 60-year-old Michael Lockett of Chicago and 66-year-old Francine Winbush of Killeen, were killed.

Online jail records did not indicate an attorney for Woods.

The second teenager is charged with racing on a highway causing death.
