BEND, Ore. – A woman is facing DUII charges after deputies say she struck and killed a bicyclist on Saturday just outside Bend.

Stone was pronounced dead at the scene.

Investigators said they believe Witt was intoxicated at the time. She was booked into the Deschutes County Jail on manslaughter, DUII, and reckless driving charges.

She has since been released. Her next court date is set for January 16.
