MATTHEWS, N.C. - The man accused of killing a mother and grandmother in a drunken driving crash went from a hospital bed to a jail cell Saturday.

Justin Jones was silent as he got into a police car at the Matthews Police Department and was taken to the Mecklenburg County Jail.

Matthews police charged Jones on Saturday with two counts of felony death by vehicle and two counts of involuntary manslaughter.

He was already charged with DWI and reckless driving.

Investigators say he hit and killed Jennifer Hunt and Marie Crook on Wednesday.

They said Crook was turning left onto Independence Boulevard from Matthews Township Parkway when Jones hit them.

Jones was also involved in another crash in Monroe in 2010 and charged with DWI. Those charges were dropped because the arresting officer didn't show up in court.

The officer told Eyewitness News she didn't get a subpoena to appear in court.
