The alleged impaired driver suspected of hitting and killing a young expectant mother who was on an evening walk with her husband in Anaheim has been charged with murder, prosecutors said. In California, drivers convicted of DUI are given whats called the Watson advisement, which informs them that they can be charged with murder if they kill someone while driving under the influence, according to prosecutors.
The defendants bail was increased from $1 million to $3 million during her arraignment, which was continued. Deputy District Attorney Brian Orue, who is prosecuting the case, had sought $5 million bail, noting that this could possibly be here fifth lifetime DUI.
Aguilar was on a stroll with her husband, James Alvarez, when the SUV jumped a curb, crashed into newspaper stand and continued along the sidewalk and hit her, according to the DAs office.
The vehicle narrowly missed Alvarez, who was not injured in the incident, but is devastated over the loss of his wife.
I was holding her hand. I was trying to pull her away towards me, Alvarez tearfully told KTLA.
Aguilar was rushed to UC Irvine Medical Center where she later died.
Doctors performed a cesarean section and were able to save the baby, a girl named Adalyn Rose.

Bail is racist isn’t it?
What is the residency status of the DUI killer?
Thank God the baby was saved.
ALL DUI’S INVOLVED IN A DEATH SHOULD BE CHARGED WITH 1ST DEGREE MURDER!
I hate people who drink and drive ... they know what they are doing, no one forced the booze on them.
You want to stop or severely curtail dunk driving ... make 1st offence 1 year in prison, 2nd ... 5 years in prison, etc...
I agree. I hate people making excuses for drunk driving that kills someone.
“could possibly be her fifth lifetime DUI.”
Perhaps more than her, the prosecutors and Judges and politicians should face murder charges.
Yet they’ll release other criminals without a second thought.
I’m guessing that because they’re not listing the name of the driver it’s an illegal alien.
I'm guessing you are correct.
I’d say sure bet.
