WOBURN, MA (WBZ-AM )  -- A widow and her three children were in Middlesex Superior Court Tuesday morning for the arraignment of an alleged impaired driver charged in the death of a man in an accident in Reading.

Prosecutors say Christopher Weisz, of Bedford was killed when  Lynn DeWolfe, 51, of Tyngsborough smashed her car into his motorcycle in Reading whilelast August. 

DeWolfe, pleaded not guilty. She remains free on $25,000 bail.

They say DeWolfe had been pulled over by State Police shortly before the crash after several by-standers reported she appeared to be driving erratically and potentially on drugs.

DeWolfe was indicted on these charges last month.

They include operating under the influence of drugs, third offense and motor vehicle homicide. 

Alexis Weisz, the widow of Christopher Weisz, tells WBZ NewsRadio1030 that DeWolfe needs to be held accountable for her actions.

"My kids are with out their father before of Lynn's actions so she needs to have some consequences," 

She also says that there should be some consequences for the State Troopers who let DeWolfe go 19-minutes after before the fatal accident.

State Police are looking into why DeWolfe was let go in the state she was in. That independent investigation is being led by Former State Attorney General Tom Riley.
