Murder charge in head-on San Leandro crash

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Prosecutors say a 19-year-old man has been charged with murder for allegedly being under the influence of alcohol when he caused a head-on crash that killed a man in the San Francisco Bay Area.

The San Francisco Chronicle reported Monday (http://bit.ly/1ic5r49 ) that Jesus Antonio Godinez was initially arrested on suspicion of gross vehicular manslaughter in connection with the collision last month in San Leandro. Thirty-two-year-old Alejandro Ramirez-Juarez was killed.

Alameda County prosecutors charged the Vallejo resident with murder and felony drunken driving on the grounds that he acted deliberately without regard for human life. Godinez, who was hurt in the crash, is being held without bail.

The newspaper says prosecutors have sought murder convictions in a number of Bay Area roadway deaths _ often in cases where a motorist is intoxicated and has past convictions for drunken driving.
