A Maryland woman is facing charges in connection with a crash that killed a newlywed couple. 

Lauren Renee Scott, 27, has been charged with homicide by motor vehicle while impaired, criminally negligent manslaughter by motor vehicle and other offenses, Anne Arundel County police said.

She was arrested on Tuesday -- Scott acknowledged using marijuana and heroin before the crash, with medical records showing she tested positive for the drugs. 

On February 14, the couple was traveling southbound on Solomons Island Road in Edgewater when Scott's Toyota Camry crossed the centerline and slammed into their Honda Civic head-on - killing the driver, 21-year-old Daniel Amos, and his 20-year-old wife, Kayla, police said.

Daniel Amos was pronounced dead at the scene while his wife died at an area hospital.
