SAN DIEGO, CA - A 21-year-old Yuma marine accused of driving drunk and causing a rollover accident that killed a fellow MCAS based marine on a San Diego freeway interchange must stand trial on gross vehicular manslaughter after a judge's ruling today.
Our CBS affiliate in San Diego reports that Deputy District Attorney, Jim Waters, says Ashley Louise Maya faces more than 10 years in prison if convicted.
The crash happened in the just after 3am back in February.
According to testimony, Maya's friend, Corporal Pedro Conceicao, took away her car keys as they left a San Diego night club, but she punched him three times and got them back.
A passenger testified that Maya was traveling about 90 mph when she tried to negotiate a sharp turn onto eastbound Interstate-8 and lost control of her 2007 Chevrolet HHR. The car then rolled over, ejecting 24-year-old Conceicao and he died at the scene.
Two others were injured.
Maya had to be hospitalized and was booked into jail two days after the accident.
The judge ruled that enough evidence was presented at the preliminary hearing for Maya to stand trial for gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated, DUI causing injury and driving with a blood-alcohol level of .08 percent or higher.
Maya cannot drive while the case is pending and is to be confined to her base in Yuma.
She is out on $50,000 bail.
She will be back in court June 27, 2012 for arraignment.
