    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.
