HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) - A Madison County judge has issued an order to revoke the bond of the woman charged with vehicular homicide, after a subsequent DUI arrest this week.

Latonya Haley, 31, was arrested Thursday morning on charges of DUI, speeding, driving without a license, and failure to have registration and insurance.

In September, Haley was accused of hitting three children on Highway 72, and leaving the scene. She posted a $60,000 bond two days later and was released.  One of the children died.

In a bond hearing Friday morning, Judge Alison Austin heard testimony from the officer who arrested Haley for driving under the influence.

In his testimony, the officer said Haley was driving 55 mph in 40 mph speed zone on Pulaski Pike when he pulled her over. He said he smelled alcohol, and Haley refused to do a field sobriety test or do a breathalyzer test. When she provided a breath sample an hour later at the station, it registered as .07.

The officer also claimed Haley continued to say "my life is over," when he took her into custody.
