A Parachute man charged with killing a Grand Junction mother and daughter in a drunken-driving accident is set to enter a plea Aug. 25.

Mesa County District Judge Richard Gurley on Thursday set the court date and said he expects 20-year-old Derrick Maxfield to enter a plea then.

Maxfield has been charged with two counts of vehicular homicide while driving under the influence of alcohol, two counts of vehicular homicide while driving recklessly and 10 other counts.

Authorities allege he sped away from officers, ran several red lights and slammed his speeding Honda Civic into a pickup at Fifth Street and North Avenue on Feb. 28, killing 21-year-old Shandi Boetel and her 6-month-old daughter, Natalia Casiano.
