Woman now charged with murder, DWI in fatal accident in Fayetteville: police

FAYETTEVILLE, NC (WNCN) — A young woman originally charged with a misdemeanor fatal accident in Fayetteville had those charges upgraded to second-degree murder, police said Friday.

At approximately 10:10 p.m. on March 5, police responded to a two-vehicle collision near the intersection of Pamalee and Van Buren Drives.

A 2015 Buick Lacrosse traveling east on Pamalee Drive crossed the center and ran head-on into a 2010 Acura TSX, police said.

A passenger in the Buick, 20-year-old Monya McDaniels, died as a result of the accident, police said earlier.

Police said on Friday that Jalea McMillan, 19, who was driving the Buick, was charged with second-degree murder. She had previously been charged with involuntary manslaughter. Police determined that she “was under the influence of an impairing substance at the time of the crash,” according to a press release.

McMillan was also charged with DWI and DWI under the age of 21. Her previous charges of failing to comply with lane control, carelessness and recklessness, missing a seat belt, speeding and possession of marijuana also remain.

McMillan was booked into the Cumberland County Jail on $13,000 bail.
