A California teen who live-streamed her alleged drunken crash in a field last week, which killed her little sister and injured another passenger, pleaded not guilty on Wednesday.

Obdulia Sanchez, 18, was arraigned Wednesday afternoon in Merced County, California, court records show. She is charged with multiple felonies in connection with a wreck Friday night that left her 14-year-old sister, Jacqueline Sanchez, dead.

According to prosecutors, the counts against Obdulia include one count of gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated, an alternative count of gross vehicular manslaughter, two counts of driving under the influence resulting in injury and two counts of driving with a blood-alcohol level of .08 percent causing injury, with great bodily injury allegations for all four vehicle code violations.

Obdulia faces a maximum sentence of 13 years and eight months in prison if convicted on all charges, authorities say. Jail records show she remains in custody in Merced County on $300,000 bail.
