Arraignment is Monday morning for Michael Anthony Robertson, who is charged with vehicular homicide for an April 4 collision on SR-520 that killed a woman who was driving to work.

Robertson is accused of being under the influence of alcohol and driving the wrong way on SR-520 before colliding with a car driven by Morgan Williams, 58.

If convicted as charged, the sentence range is 6 1/2 to 8 1/2 years in prison.

Robertson's bail is set at $1 million.

Last year, the state legislature approved a bill that doubled the standard range for vehicular homicide (DUI), making it equal to a sentence for manslaughter first degree.
