PENDER COUNTY, NC (WWAY)-- A woman questioned in the death of a 2-year-old over the weekend has been arrested again. This time in Pender County for DWI and this is not her first run-in with the law.

28-year old Stevie Wallace was arrested for DWI after police say she was swerving all over the road.

She was arrested Tuesday night but not given a Breathalyzer instead her blood was submitted for testing with the state lab.

We went to her house in Pender County tonight. No one answered the door and neighbors tell us she hasn't been home in some time.

She was questioned Saturday night after leaving a party in Hampstead after police say she ran over and killed a 2 year old boy.

No charges have been filed in that case.

The Pender County Sheriff’s office said they have not decided whether charges will be filed because they are waiting on evidence to get back from the state lab. They would not say what that evidence was

Wallace has also been arrested before for felony larceny and drug possession and trafficking charges.

She still has several drug related charges and moving violations outstanding in Pender County as well.

She was released from jail on that DWI charge on a $1,500 bond.

I don't think WWAY or ANY news media has the right to go to this girl's house and knock on her door. You are not law enforcement and have no business being there or at anyone's house like that. All you want to do is question her. She has dealt with law enforcement and they let her go home which is a place you are supposed to be safe and be able to relax. I think it is an invasion of her privacy, which we are all entitled to especially in our home. Basically, you just want to stir the pot. God help someone who comes knocking on my door in a situation like this. It wouldn't be pretty. All you bleeding hearts take note that I am not saying she isn't guilty and she doesn't deserve to pay dearly for this. My reference here is the fact no one should be knocking on someone's door in this situation unless it is the police. I wouldn't come to the door either... and if I did you would regret it.

Do you think the family of the two year old little boy she killed is able to sit at home and "relax"? She should be in jail rotting!!!

Anyone can come to your door unless there are visible no trespassing signs. Once at your door then you can ask them to leave and if they do not then you can call the law. Please get your facts straight.

If I am involved in something that made the news and I went home for some privacy, The media does not have the right to bother me. If you ran over someone tonight do you want the media hounding you about how you feel about it, why did you do it, were you drinking or taking drugs, have you talked to the family??? I do have my facts straight and if you don't believe me, try coming to my door in a media van or car.

...and I'm not criticizing your comment. I simply want you to understand our point of view(from the news).
It is our job to get both sides of the story or at minimal attempt to get both sides.
That requires us having to knock on doors that at times we'd rather not.
But 'rather not' is personal and a balanced report doesn't allow a reporter's personal feelings to come into play.
So we knock. We ask. We have to attempt to get the other side. Every story. Even the horrible ones.
I hope that makes sense.

Thank you for expressing your view.

I'm sorry for the family, I can't imagine your pain. Yes, this girl has a past & yes she just got a DWI...but accidents happen. It sucks; it's a horrible thing. If the police thought she was any way inebriated at the time of the accident; she would have been arrested. A family lost a child and this girl knows she did it. Most humans are not monsters, her past shows she is young and dumb as are many...I'd be riddled with guilt and probably be throwing back one too many...I pray both parties find peace.

So, tell me, what do previous or subsequent charges have to do with the incident with the child? Sounds like if a 2 year old was in a situation where he might be hurt or killed, that parent(s) should shoulder much of the blame. People are supposed to know where their kids are and keep them safe. Unfortunately, this is no longer the case and when something happens, someone else gets the blame.

She is a party girl that hasn't had to pay the piper. Hopefully the bill comes in soon before she kills again.

She is worthless. Put her in jail where she belongs.

Is it possible that she could of been drunk or high when she ran over that baby? From what I just read she had a pretty extensive history of drugs and alcohol.

In another article on this site, it says that the police said that she was not obviously inebriated at the time of the accident and that she passed a breathalyzer test. They are waiting on results from a blood test.
