LAS VEGAS( FOX5)-. The legal representative of the man accused of driving drunk and crashing into a couple stopped at a traffic signal said that there is no possible cause that his client was behind the wheel during the fatal crash.” There is likely cause that the vehicle was taking a trip at a high rate of speed but the state has to show possible cause that [my client] was running the vehicle,” defense attorney Damian Sheets argued prior to a judge Monday.
According to authorities, Henry Aparicio, 23, was driving under the influence and at a high rate of speed when he rear-ended a Toyota Prius at the crossway of Sahara and Hualapai the night of May 15. Married couple Damaso and Christa Puente died at the scene.
Aparicio and another guest inside his car were taken to the health center.
At the preliminary hearing, the prosecution indicated proof consisting of witness statement and the defendant’s preliminary response to the crash.” He blurted out these 2 declarations: ‘Did I eliminate the two people?’ ‘Did I run the red light?’ It’s generally an admission,” the prosecution stated.
The judge stated she wishes to bring a jury on board to weigh in on some elements of the case.
Aparicio is anticipated back in court Wednesday June 6.
