A man who drove under the influence and hit and killed a woman and her dog in San Anselmo has been charged with murder.
30-year-old James Boswell was arraigned on charges of DUI causing injury, DUI with a blood-alcohol level more than 0.08% causing injury, and murder among other charges.
He is scheduled to enter pleas to the charges on May 15.
He faces a mandatory prison sentence on the murder charge because he was convicted of DUI in Los Angeles in Oct. 2014.
Boswell was arrested Apr. 28 after authorities received a report of a pedestrian hit by a car near Butterfield Road and Caletta Avenue.
Boswell hit 72-year-old Carolyn Marie Allen of San Anselmo and her two dogs, police said.
Allen was taken to the hospital where she later died.
One of her dogs survived.
