A co-founder of a nonprofit is facing murder charges after she allegedly drove into two young brothers, killing them, in suburban #Los #Angeles #County, prosecutors said.

#Eleven-year-old #Mark #Iskander and his 8-year-old brother #Jacob #Iskander were with their parents, crossing a #Westlake #Village street in a marked crosswalk, when they were struck by a car on #Sept. 29, the #Los #Angeles #County #District #Attorney’s #Office said.

The suspected driver, #Rebecca #Grossman, was allegedly speeding at the time, prosecutors said. #She’s also accused of fleeing the scene, “eventually stopping about one-quarter mile away from the scene when her car engine cutoff,” prosecutors said.

#Grossman, 57, is facing two felony counts each of murder and vehicular manslaughter with gross negligence, prosecutors announced #Wednesday. #She’s also facing one felony count of hit-and-run driving resulting in death, prosecutors said.

#Grossman and her husband founded the #Grossman #Burn #Foundation, a #Los #Angeles #County-based nonprofit that provides burn prevention education and burn treatment, according to its website. The #Grossman #Burn #Foundation is the “philanthropic arm” of the #Grossman #Burn #Centers, which were founded by #Rebecca #Grossman’s father-in-law, according to the website.

#Grossman, of #Hidden #Hills, #California, is expected to be arraigned #Wednesday. #If convicted, she could face a maximum of 34 years to life in prison. #It’s unclear at this time if #Grossman has an attorney.

The #Grossman #Burn #Foundation declined to comment to ABC #News #Wednesday.
