A grand jury has indicted a Memphis woman for the death of an off-duty Memphis firefighter and the injury of another last November on Interstate 240, officials said Friday.

The grand jury indicted Dolly Cox, 44, for vehicular homicide and aggravated assault. 

Officials claim a car driven by Cox struck Janeal Williams and Eddie Rone last November while their motorcycles were parked in an emergency lane on I-240 near the Millbranch exit. Williams died from his injuries.

Memphis police conducted a criminal investigation into the incident which led to the indictment.  Cox was arrested Friday and is being held in the Shelby County Jail on $250,000 bond.  An arraignment date has not been set.

If convicted in court, officials said, Cox could face eight to twelve years in prison for the vehicular homicide charge and two to four years in prison for the aggravated assault charge.
