DUI driver convicted of murder in Orange County California.
Posted on Sep 15, 2009
Milad Moulayi, the Orange County youth that was tried as an adult for the DUI crash that killed his classmate, was convicted of murder last week. Deputy District Attorney Susan Price argued that Moulayi, who did not have a license, was repeatedly warned not to drive and obviously knew the dangers of driving while being intoxicated. She pushed for second degree murder instead of vehicular manslaughter.
Moulayi was drinking shots of rum that night with his friends when his classmate, MacKenzie Frazee needed a ride home. Several of his friends refused to get into his car with him because he was so drunk, but Frazee was barefoot and her home was over two miles away. An accident reconstruction expert testified that Moulayi traveled at speeds over 100 mph, crossed the center median, knocked down a couple of signs before slamming into a utility pole. Although Frazee was wearing her seat belt, she died instantly of blunt force trauma. She was only 16 years old.
Moulayi now faces sentencing in October by Orange County Superior Court Judge Carla Singer. He is facing 15 years to life.
