Ex-coach ordered to trial for deadly DUI crash

FRESNO, Calif. (AP) -- A former California high school basketball coach has been ordered to trial for a drunken driving crash that killed a 7-year-old boy.

Prosecutors say Loren LeBeau was behind the wheel of a car that struck Donovan Maldonado and dragged the boy 800 feet to his death in Fresno last summer.

The Fresno Bee (http://bit.ly/Yyqjst) says LeBeau's car struck Donovan, his sister Bella, and their father Jesse Maldonado as they bicycled in a crosswalk.

A Fresno judge on Tuesday ruled there was enough evidence to order trial for the former Central High School coach on charges of drunken driving, gross negligence and other charges.

LeBeau is free on $256,000 bail pending a March hearing.
