A Rhode Island woman convicted of drunken driving in a 2005 crash that killed two elderly sisters is back behind bars after allegedly violating probation by driving under the influence again.

A judge on Monday ordered 32-year-old Brandy Graff held without bail.

Graff was arrested at about 1 a.m. Friday after police say she struck another car in Providence while driving with her headlights out and going the wrong way on a one-way street.

Police say the Providence woman's blood-alcohol level was nearly three times the legal limit to drive.

Graff was sentenced to 15 years in prison for the 2005 crash in Narragansett that killed 95-year-old Theodora Mastracchio and 86-year-old Victoria Riccio.

She was released on good behavior after serving nearly six years.

Graff's attorney declined comment outside court.
