LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

A preliminary hearing for Spearmint Rhino stripper Shauna Miller was rescheduled on Wednesday in her fatal DUI case.

Miller's hearing was reset for June 13.

Miller, whose bond was raised to $200,000 earlier this month, was charged with driving under the influence resulting in death following a collision at Spring Mountain and Wynn roads.

The wreck claimed the life of James White on March 23.

Meanwhile, the family of the man killed in the wreck believes Miller is not the only one to blame.

"He was the most wonderful man in the world, and I always used to tell him he was the best daddy in the world," said Rachel Sidor, whose fiance, James White, was killed in the crash.

White and Sidor were raising their son, James White Jr. The father and son were heading home from dropping Sidor off at work when their car collided with a Hummer, reportedly driven by Miller, 26.

While police are still investigating who ran the red light at Spring Mountain Road that caused the wreck, officers said Miller was intoxicated.

"He [James White Jr.] wakes up screaming sometimes, and he looks for his dad. I just breaks my heart, because it's like, what am I supposed to do, you know?" Sidor asked.

According to her arrest report, Miller told police she had consumed several beers prior to the accident while working as a dancer. She additionally confessed to having taken Xanax, a drug she said was usually provided by people inside her club.

"This industry makes it OK to drink. Everybody just turns a blind eye against it, it seems," Sidor said.

It's those people Sidor's attorney, Larry Hill, hopes to hold responsible.

Hill said he will name Spearmint Rhino in a lawsuit in the hopes that the case will prevent other gentlemen's clubs from allowing their employees to leave intoxicated.

"I don't want anybody to feel what I feel. Unfortunately, it will happen again," Sidor said.
