AKRON, Ohio (WOIO) - The mom accused of causing a crash that killed her son and nephew was arraigned in Akron Municipal Court Thursday.

Tynicka Allen pleaded not guilty to the charges of aggravated vehicular homicide, aggravated vehicular assault, driving under suspension, child endangering, reckless operation, speeding and failure to control.

Allen now has 24 hours to turn herself into the Summit County Jail to be photographed and processed.

The judge will allow her to remain out, as long as she keeps on showing up for her court hearings.
