Apparently, the defendant was driving early Monday morning in the University area, specifically, on W.T. Harris and Idelwild Road, when his car was involved in a serious accident.
The crash occurred between a Charlotte Native and three brothers who had recently emigrated from Honduras.
The two brothers who were killed were ages 45 and 34 respectively; and both died upon the impact of the collision. The remaining brother survived, and was present in court for the defendant’s initial appearance, on behalf of his two brothers.
The defendant is now facing multiple charges, including being under the influence at the time of the car accident. His mother was vigilant in disputing that her son was “ a good kid with no priors, aside from some minor traffic incidents.”
However, public record states differently. It states that the defendant has been arrested four times since December of last year. These arrests include both alcohol and drug charges, on top of traffic offenses.
Thus far, the defendant most serious charge is felony death by vehicle.
His bond is set at almost 1 million dollars; right around $900,000.
