Wheels of justice turning in ‘road rage’ freeway killing
COSTA MESA – (INT) – An Orange County man and woman face arraignment Tuesday on charges stemming from last month’s road rage shooting on the 55 freeway that killed a 6-year-old boy.
Marcus Anthony Eriz, 24, and his girlfriend, Wynne Lee, 23, were arrested at their Costa Mesa home over the weekend and are being held on $1 million bail each.
Assistant CHP Chief Donald Goodbrand disclosed at a Monday afternoon news conference that both the gun and the vehicle involved in the incident have been recovered, but he didn’t say where.
As to how Eriz and Lee were linked to the investigation, Chief Goodbrand praised the public and the media as being ‘extremely helpful’ and that the CHP “never gave up”. He said there were ‘hundreds’ of tips.
District Attorney Todd Spitzer side-stepped questions on what role the $500,000 reward money might have played and that specific charges will be detailed when the couple is arraigned.
Aiden Leos was killed when his mother was driving him to school on the morning of May 21st. He was laid to rest Monday.
