The woman suspected of driving under the influence and smashing her car into the 15-month-old son of MMA fighter Marcus Kowal was arrested again on Wednesday — this time with a much more serious charge.

As you may have heard, Donna Marie Higgins had first been arrested on Saturday, shortly after crashing into Liam Mikael Kowal as his aunt pushed him in a stroller along a crosswalk.

The 72-year-old was originally booked on suspicion of felony hit-and-run and drunken driving charges and was released on Sunday after posting bail.

But once the toddler was declared dead on Sunday after his family took him off life support, Hawthorne police consulted with the Los Angeles County district attorney's office and decided to re-arrest Higgins on suspicion of vehicle manslaughter.

Even on the stiffer charge, however, the suspect didn't last too long behind bars — the elderly woman was released from the police station after posting her $100,000 bond.

While Kowal says he harbors no ill will towards the woman, he would like to "speak directly to her" at the trial, telling press:

The child's teenage aunt was walking him through a crosswalk in his stroller when they were hit by the 72-year-old, who attempted to flee the scene.

And, even after the terrible tragedy made the athlete's son brain dead, the sports star told CBS Los Angeles on Tuesday that he isn't harboring any hatred for the woman who took his baby's life, saying:

"I've always said, 'If someone takes from me, I take back.' And I'm really surprised actually that I don't feel any rage. I haven't felt any rage. I don't feel any hatred."

He also recalled the chilling moment his little one was struck, adding:

"There's footage showing [Liam's aunt] pressed the button for the crosswalk, but this lady didn't brake."

On Sunday, the fighter took Liam off life support. Marcus stayed at the hospital with his baby until Tuesday, when he finally said goodbye.

He posted this heart-wrenching picture to Instagram, as he held his son's hand for the last time:
