Two illegal immigrants charged with killing a young Savannah woman in a drunk driving crash on Ogeechee Road were in court yesterday for the first time.
Felix Maldonado and Jesus Perez went before Judge Tom Edenfield at city hall in Garden City. Neither man can speak English, and they didn't have a translator available, so the judge had to postpone their arraignment until March 22.
Police say Maldonado and Perez were driving drunk on Highway 17 last Saturday, when they crossed the center line and slammed their SUV into 21-year-old Latoya Holloway's car. She died at the scene.
Maldonado and Perez are both charged with vehicular homicide and drunk driving.
