EL RENO, Oklahoma -

The arraignment for a man accused of killing a 19-year-old UCO student in a wrong-way crash will be at the Canadian County courthouse.

Oklahoma Highway Patrol said Malcolm Penney was driving the wrong way on the Kilpatrick Turnpike when his vehicle crashed into Marissa Murrow's car.

Penney is charged with second-degree murder and leaving the scene of a fatality accident.

According to court documents, Penney's blood alcohol content was twice the legal limit when the crash happened.

An active member of her sorority at the University of Central Oklahoma, Murrow's parents have honored her by starting a scholarship in their daughter's name. They are also advocating for change in driving under the influence law.

"To keep a person who has this much history with DUIs from getting a driver's license in Oklahoma; more needs to be done, so we're going to need help with that,” Jeff Morrow, Marissa’s father, said.

Penney's arraignment is 9 a.m. Tuesday at the Canadian County courthouse.
