Stephenville resident Alyssa Litwin has been processed and is sitting in the Wichita County Jail following her arrest Friday morning.
District Attorney Alan Nash said Litwin will be brought back to Erath County when transport with the sheriff’s office can be coordinated.
Nash would not comment on why Litwin was in Wichita Falls Friday when she was taken into custody.
Litwin has been charged with 8 felony counts in connection with a deadly accident on Dec. 3 that claimed the lives of two young sisters - five-year-old Codie and nine-month-old Charli Sackett.
Their mother, Carrie Sackett, was seriously injured and transported by air to a Fort Worth hospital where she remains in stable condition.
Litwin’s charges include two counts of manslaughter, four counts of endangering a child (One for each of the four children involved in the accident. Two survived, two did not), one count of aggravated assault (related to Carrie Sackett’s injuries) and one count of tampering with evidence.
The official complaint outlining the charges against Litwin allege that she was on her cell phone at the time of the accident.
A forensic examination of her phone show that she sent her husband a text message at 3:30 p.m. and sent a series of Facebook messages at 3:31 p.m.
The complaint states that the first call to the Erath County Sheriff’s Office reporting the crash was made at 3:33 p.m.
Litwin admitted to an investigator on scene that she deleted a string of text messages immediately following the accident.
The complaint states that the officer said to Litwin, “Seems suspicious that you deleted the messages,” and Litwin replied, “Absolutely. I…I mean from your point of view I can completely see how that would be suspicious.”
If convicted, Litwin faces up to 20 years in prison.
An employee of the Wichita County Jail said Litwin’s bond will be set on Saturday.
