A Texas State University student accused of killing a man and his unborn child in a 2016 drunk driving incident pleaded guilty on Monday.
Shana Elliott, 22, allegedly crashed her Chevrolet Impala over the center line on Highway 21 into a Toyota Corolla. Inside the Corolla were father-to-be Fabian Guerrero-Moreno, 23, and his wife, Kristian Nicole Guerrero, who was five months pregnant. Guerrero-Moreno died in the Aug. 2 crash and his wife’s injury led to the unborn child’s death.
The trial is ongoing, but since Elliott pled guilty in front of the jury, they have been instructed to return a guilty verdict on the two counts of intoxication manslaughter and then she will be sentenced.
In video footage shown to the jury and seen by KXAN, a bikini-clad Elliott is seen struggling to pass a sobriety test, and asking the police officers how the couple was doing, saying: “Kill me now. Please. I just want them to be OK.”
Her blood alcohol level was 0.199, according to KXAN, and the legal limit in Texas is 0.08.
