      Yes I hope she is charged with two deaths, one for the woman and one for the unborn child. 

      Unfortunately, this was a sad thing that had happened, but everyone bear in mind, if you are with friends or family that have been drinking DO NOT GET IN THE CAR WITH THEM.  If you think they are intoxicated and can't take the keys from them, call the police.  At least you have done everything you possibly could have done to stop them from killing themseleves or maybe others.

    Why did it take 6 months to charge her?

    As we know from recent events, Cayman's awful sentences for these offences are insufficient to change the behaviour patterns of the nation's worst drivers.
