On March 31, 55-year-old Lesha Adams and 64-year-old Jesse Perez were both killed crossing the street on North Shepherd near West 10th Street.
Adams was on her way home from dinner with her children in the car when she pulled over to try to help Perez, who is disabled, cross the road.
She and Perez were hit and killed by Mimms, who took off after the incident, according to authorities.
Investigators say Mimms fled the scene, but returned 30 minutes later after going to her grandmother's house. She's expected to appear in court Wednesday morning.
