A preliminary hearing was set this morning for a 19-year-old woman suspected of driving drunk and killing two people in Henderson earlier this month.

Anita Mann, of Henderson, is charged with two felony counts of driving under the influence of alcohol resulting in death in connection with the Feb. 16 crash. She is also facing hit-and-run and failure to render aid misdemeanor charges in connection with a separate crash that occurred before the fatal collision. On Feb. 17, she pleaded not guilty to the misdemeanor charges in Henderson Municipal Court.

Mann appeared in Henderson Justice Court for her arraignment today with attorney Steven Wolfson in front of Pro Tem Judge Eugene Martin. Martin scheduled Mann’s preliminary hearing for 9:30 a.m. March 11 in Henderson Justice Court.

Friends and family members attended the arraignment this morning and left in tears.

“This is a tragic case for everyone concerned,” Wolfson said. “We wish to express our condolences.”

Police said Mann, a private first class in the Nevada National Guard, is accused of rear-ending a Hyundai Santa Fe on Horizon Ridge Parkway, killing Karen Hicks and Louis Madden, both 65, of Henderson.

Mann is being held in the Henderson Detention Center, but will be transferred to the Clark County Detention Center later today, Wolfson said. Her bail is set at $240,000 for the two felony counts and $5,000 for each misdemeanor charge.
