Eliseo Larios Charged for Death of Baby Genesis in Fatal RTA

Eliseo Israel Larios

In San Estevan Village, Orange Walk, one year old Genesis Teresa Medina was killed in a fatal hit and run on Sunday afternoon. The alleged driver who knocked down the toddler was soon nabbed by police and today, he was arraigned in the Orange Walk Magistrate Court. Police believe that twenty-eight year old Eliseo Israel Larios was behind the steering wheel of a Mazda pickup around four p.m. on Sunday when baby Genesis was hit and dragged at least a hundred feet to her death. Larios, believed to have been intoxicated, didn’t stop; the vehicle was discovered half an hour later abandoned inside a cane field off the Fresh Water Creek Road, south of San Estevan Village. When the resident of Trial Farm Village appeared in the court today he was charged with Manslaughter by Negligence, Causing Death by Careless Conduct, Failure to Report an Accident, Failure to Stop and Render Aid, Driving Under the Influence and Driving Without Due Care and Attention. Larios was issued bail and is expected to return to court in early 2016. According to the family, baby Genesis escaped from her father and ran onto the street. She was hit on Calle Del Sol Street in the village, just a couple feet from the front door to her house.
