LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

A Las Vegas stripper accused of driving under the influence during a deadly crash was ordered to trial.

Shauna Miller appeared in Las Vegas Justice Court on Thursday for a preliminary hearing.

She was charged with driving under the influence, resulting in death in connection to a wreck on March 23.

An arraignment in Clark County District Court was set for June 24.

Last month, a judge denied a motion filed by her attorneys to suppress a blood alcohol report from being entered as evidence.

According to police, Miller was behind the wheel of an H2 Hummer on Spring Mountain Road when she collided with a car at the intersection with Wynn Road.

Police said the early morning wreck killed James Joseph White, 33, and injured his 2-year-old son.

"His whole left side of his face was swollen. His eye was swollen shut. He had a skull fracture," White's fiancé, Rachel Sidor, said on the witness stand, describing her son's injuries.

An arrest report said officers observed Miller's eyes as glassy and her pupils constricted. They also detected a moderate odor of alcohol, the report said.

When asked what she had been doing before the wreck, Miller, in the report, told police she had been working at the Spearmint Rhino strip club from 2 to 5:30 a.m.

She told officers, in the report, that she had two beers, with her last consumed about 3 or 4 a.m. She also told police she took a Xanax pill the night before but did not have a prescription for it.

The admission prompted officers to give Miller a field sobriety test, which resulted in failures in two of the test's phases.

As a result, police in the report arrested Miller for DUI resulting in death.

In Thursday's hearing, Miller's attorneys argued witnesses gave conflicting reports about whether Miller ran a red light before the crash.

She was booked into Clark County Detention Center. Her bail was set at $200,000.
