TEMPE, Ariz. -- Authorities said a woman is in custody in connection with a crash that killed a motorcyclist in Tempe.

Tempe police said 32-year-old Veronica Muckerman is being held on suspicion of one count of manslaughter and three counts of aggravated DUI.

They said Muckerman displayed signs of alcohol impairment.

Police said Muckerman had her 9- and 12-year-old daughters in the SUV with her at the time of Tuesday night's accident. The children weren't hurt.

Police said 21-year-old Elsa Tovar later died at a hospital from her injuries.

Authorities didn't immediately know Wednesday if Muckerman has an attorney.
