GREEN RIVER, Wyo. (AP) — A Green River man is charged with two counts of aggravated vehicular homicide after prosecutors say he hit a house while driving under the influence of a narcotic, killing a woman and her 1-year-old great-granddaughter.
The Rocket Miner reports (bit.ly/2mFPkYw) 68-year-old George Maestas made an initial court appearance Monday. He also is charged with DUI causing serious bodily injury for the crash Friday morning. He did not enter a plea.
His bail was set at $1 million and his preliminary hearing is scheduled for March 20.
Maestas is charged in the deaths of 62-year-old Debra Devries and Stella Doak. Three others were injured.
Court records say Maestas told officers someone gave him a prescription narcotic at about 2 a.m. Friday and that he drank some Nyquil before going to bed.
