    Two people are dead after a suspected DUI driver struck them in Menlo Park.

    A Redwood City woman accused of driving drunk when she struck and killed a Menlo Park couple who was walking their dog has pleaded not guilty to all charges.
     
    San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe says  54-year-old Marjorie Reitzell appeared in court Tuesday afternoon with her attorney and entered her plea. She also waived her right to a speedy preliminary hearing.

      Prosecutors say Reitzell had a blood-alcohol level more than twice the limit when she struck Kamal Singh, 45, and Balbir Singh, 50, on Oct. 24 as the couple walked their dog.
     
    Reitzell remains in custody on $2 million bail.
