LAS VEGAS (AP) — Prosecutors in Nevada have charged a woman with murder, child abuse and felony hit-and-run after authorities say she repeatedly plowed her vehicle into crowds on the Las Vegas Strip.

Documents filed Tuesday list the charges against 24-year-old Lakeisha Nicole Holloway, who is due in court Wednesday.

She is being held in jail without bail in Sunday’s crash that killed 1 and injured dozens. Police say her 3-year-old daughter was with her in the vehicle but wasn’t hurt.

Clark County District Attorney Steve Wolfson has said prosecutors were considering “a great number” of additional charges against Holloway.

The crash killed 32-year-old Jessica Valenzuela of Buckeye, Arizona, and sent at least 35 people to hospitals, including three in critical condition.

Other victims are from Oregon, Florida, Colorado, California, Washington, Pennsylvania, Mexico and Canada.
