FULLERTON – A drunken driver will be arraigned today on charges of killing another motorist by driving through a red light and crashing into the victim in an intersection. Alice Darlene Moya, 21, Lynwood, is charged with one felony count of vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated without gross negligence and faces a maximum sentence of four years in state prison if convicted. Moya is out of custody on $100,000 bail and is scheduled to be arraigned this morning, Thursday, June 17, 2010, in Department N-3, North Justice Center, Fullerton.
