Man charged with murder in death of San Anselmo woman

Bay Area

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.
