YUMA, AZ - Friends and family members of Pedro Conceicao continue to express their sorrow and support on his Facebook page as they work through their grief.
Posts like "Rest in peace, Pedro Conceicao " and others continue to pour in. They express anger toward the driver behind the wheel, who authorities say was driving drunk at the time.
Reports from the California Highway Patrol say Conceicao was a passenger in a vehicle driven by 21-year-old Ashley Maya, who was also stationed at MCAS Yuma.
CHP-San Diego says its fatality collision report could take three weeks or longer to finalize.
On Thursday, Maya was arraigned on Driving Under the Influence and Vehicular Manslaughter charges. She remains in Las Colinas Women's Detention Center in Santee on a $300,000 bond.
But that could change; Maya has a Bail Review Hearing set for February 23rd.
Steve Walker with the San Diego County District Attorney's Office says Maya's Readiness Conference is set for February 28th. Maya could accept a plea bargain at that time, depending on the evidence against her. The judge could grant her leniency if she pleads guilty to the charges.
Although Walker couldn't comment on the case itself, he's says Maya's Preliminary Hearing is scheduled for March 1st.
Funeral services for Conceicao will be held next Friday at McClean Bible Church in Vienna, Virginia.
