LAS VEGAS (FOX5/AP) -

The Las Vegas stripper accused of driving impaired when she was involved in a deadly wreck pleaded not guilty in court Monday.

Shauna Miller appeared for her felony arraignment on a charge of driving under the influence causing death in Clark County District Court.

A judge set her trial for Dec. 9. Miller faces 20 years in prison in the case.

Earlier this month, a judge determined there was enough evidence to send Miller to trial in the DUI case.

According to authorities, Miller was behind the wheel of an H2 Hummer vehicle that struck a car at the intersection of Spring Mountain and Wynn roads March 23.

Police said the wreck killed the driver of the other vehicle, 33-year-old James Joseph White.

According to an arrest report, Miller, 26, had been working a shift earlier that night at the Spearmint Rhino strip club, where, she admitted in the report, drinking beer.

Miller also said, in the report, she had a Xanax pill the evening before the wreck.

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

She remains at Clark County Detention Center on $200,000 bail.
