Prosecutors have filed vehicular homicide, assault and reckless driving charges against a driver who crashed into a family in Seattle, killing two grandparents and leaving their daughter-in-law and baby grandson in critical condition.

Mark Mullan faces a sentencing range of 15 to 19 years in prison if he's convicted as charged.

Prosecutors said in court documents Thursday that Mullan's preliminary blood-alcohol level was 0.22 percent after Monday's crash. That's nearly three times Washington's legal limit for driving.

He remains jailed on $2.5 million bail, with arraignment scheduled for April 11. It's not known if he has a lawyer.

The crash killed Dennis and Judith Schulte, retired teachers from Kokomo, who recently moved to Seattle. Thirty-three-year-old Karina Schulte and her infant son were critically injured.

Friends of the family have set up a fund to help the Schultes with medical expenses. To donate, click here.
