Two teenagers were indicted on manslaughter charges on Monday for allegedly crashing into another vehicle while street racing in a stolen car earlier this year in Phoenix, Arizona, the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office announced.
Jakel Huckaby and Elena Marie Rodriguez, who both are 17 years old, were each charged with four counts of manslaughter, one count of aggravated assault, three counts of endangerment, and one count of leaving the scene of a fatal accident.
Maricopa County Attorney Rachel Mitchell said that the “senseless acts by these two individuals have brought pain and suffering to the families of those killed.”
“This type of reckless behavior must stop and for those who continue to engage in this type of dangerous activity, you will be held accountable,” Mitchell said in a statement.
