STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) – Prosecutors have charged an Oklahoma driver who they say hit and killed a woman and her 5-year-old daughter while driving drunk.

KOTV-TV reports troopers say 23-year-old James Goblet was driving the wrong way down Highway 51 on Saturday night. Twenty-nine-year-old McKala Miner and her daughter Halli Miner were returning from Oklahoma State University’s homecoming game when they were hit.

Goblet has been charged with manslaughter and DUI. He posted bond on Monday afternoon.

It wasn’t immediately clear if Goblet has an attorney.
