Gross Vehicular Manslaughter
The Menlo Park Police Department announced Wednesday that it is seeking a specific witness who may have watched a grisly fatal drunken driving accident last month that claimed the lives of a Menlo Park couple out walking their dog.
Marjorie Reitzell first complained of chest pains on Monday and was not cleared to appear in San Mateo County Superior Court again on Tuesday, San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe said.
A Redwood City woman suspected of striking two people Thursday in Menlo Park as they walked their dog has a prior drunk driving conviction from 2012, according to San Mateo County court records.
Two people walking a dog were struck from behind and killed by a suspected drunken driver in Menlo Park Thursday night, a police commander said.
A Santa Rosa man pleaded guilty Thursday morning in Sonoma County Superior Court to hit-and-run and other charges stemming from the death of a 4-year-old boy he struck and killed in a crosswalk in August.
