    A woman accused of intentionally plowing a car with her child inside through crowds of pedestrians on a Las Vegas Strip sidewalk has been arraigned on murder, hit-and-run and child abuse charges on Wednesday.

    Lakeisha Nicole Holloway stood in shackles Wednesday and didn't enter a plea during her brief court appearance. Defense lawyer Joseph Abood said she is "heartbroken" over the crash Sunday that killed a woman and injured dozens of people.

    She barely spoke and nodded to acknowledge that she understood she'll remain in jail through the holidays. 

    Clark County District Attorney Steve Wolfson says additional charges are likely, depending on results of drug and alcohol tests and the police investigation.
