SEATTLE (AP) - King County prosecutors are expected to file charges Thursday against a driver who crashed into a family in Seattle, killing two people and leaving a mother and baby in critical condition.
    
Mark Mullan is held on $2.5 million bail for investigation of vehicular homicide and vehicular assault.
    
Investigators say the 50-year-old Seattle man was driving under the influence of alcohol Monday when he hit the family crossing a street.

Susan Morton, Judith's younger sister, said the couple had just arrived from Kokomo, Ind., to help.
