A Southern California motorist has been ordered to stand trial for plowing into people leaving a Christmas church concert, killing three women and a 6-year-old boy.

City News Service says Margo Bronstein was ordered Tuesday to stand trial for gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated and driving under the influence of a drug. She's pleaded not guilty.

Police say on Dec. 17 Bronstein struck people walking across the Pacific Coast Highway in Redondo Beach. Nearly a dozen were injured. Six-year-old Samuel Gaza was pinned under the car and dragged. He died along with his mother and two women in their 80s.

Police say Bronstein, who has disabilities, told them she'd taken a prescription painkiller and a muscle relaxant.

She faces up to 40 years in prison if convicted.
