A woman accused in a deadly DUI that killed a mother and her young child will have to find $300,000 in cash to bond out of jail for the second time.

A judge set the amount at a bond hearing Friday. The judge also set a few condition for Vlach's release if she can meet the amount: she has to take medication that creates an adverse reaction after drinking alcohol, and she has to wear some type of anti-drinking stamp bracelet.

Vlach is accused of getting behind the wheel drunk and crashing into a minivan in eastern El Paso County. Nicole Enderle, 42, and Alexander Enderle, 3, of Yoder were killed. Two-year-old Zoe Enderle was the lone survivor. The crash happened in July 2013.

Vlach was charged with DUI and vehicular homicide, and first bonded out of jail in November. Earlier this month, she returned to court after authorities said she violated the terms of her bond.

During that hearing on March 6, Vlach's attorneys argued that she suffers from a hereditary condition that impacts her liver and thyroid, which could affect whether or not she knew she was too intoxicated to drive.

Authorities say Vlach admitted to having around 10 beers and peppermint schnapps the night before the crash, which happened the following morning. 11 News spoke to an emergency room doctor at the time of the crash, who said it's not uncommon for people to still be intoxicated hours after they finish drinking.
