LEBANON, TN (WSMV) -

The woman accused of drinking and driving, then causing a fatal wreck last week in Lebanon, is being held without bond.

Alton Brant Barrett, 4, of Lebanon and his 69-year-old grandfather, James A. Barrett, were pronounced dead on the scene.

Police say at the time of the wreck, Barbara Mayfield was out on bond from a previous drunk driving conviction, after she allegedly caused another wreck at the exact same intersection.

She was even wearing an ankle monitoring device Friday when she got back behind the wheel.

Mayfield is now charged with two counts of vehicular homicide, driving under the influence and driving on a revoked license.

Lebanon police say she has been arrested 12 times since 2002, but this time she won't be getting out of jail any time soon.

That's too little too late for the Barrett family and the family of Barrett's passenger, who was critically injured.

The man's family has identified him as Ronnie Boyd, and they tell Channel 4 he may never walk again.

The Brant and James Barrett Fund has been set up at Liberty State Bank to help the family pay for funeral expenses.
