Manslaughter Charge in the Death of Jillian Garcia

Nineteen-year-old Jillian Garcia lost his life on Sunday night when he was run over by an SUV traveling at high speed.  The incident happened in his home village of Trial Farm in Orange Walk District.  The teenager had a misunderstanding with a group of young men a few moments prior to that incident and investigators were tasked with finding out whether he was deliberately knocked down or if the driver of the vehicle justifiably lost control of the wheel and ran him over.  Tonight, twenty-nine-year-old Luigi Chable has been arrested and charged for manslaughter by negligence, causing death by careless conduct, among a raft of other lesser traffic offences.  The family and other residents who witnessed the incident contend that the driver intentionally ran the vehicle into Garcia which, once proven, would have made it a case of vehicular homicide.  However, the Mitsubishi Outlander that was the alleged weapon was torched near the scene of the deadly collision, limiting the scope of the investigation.  Chable was additionally charged with driving a motor vehicle without due care and attention, using an unlicensed motor vehicle and using a motor vehicle not covered by third party risk insurance.
