Edwin Jackson death: Illegal immigrant facing charges after alleged drunken driving crash

He remained jailed Tuesday but has not been formally charged in the crash.

Investigators said Jackson, 26, and his Uber driver, 54-year-old Jeffrey Monroe, were standing outside Monroe's auto along Interstate 70 when they were struck early Sunday by a pickup truck driven by Orrego-Savala.

"According to court documents and jail information, Alex Cabrera Gonsales is the same person as Manuel Orrego-Savala, the man now in custody in Marion County for allegedly causing Sunday's crash", Meyer said, according to WBIC Indianapolis. Court documents list his blood alcohol level at 0.19, which is more than double the state's legal limit (0.08), according to the AP.

A breath test found that Orrego-Savala's blood-alcohol content was almost 0.24%, three times Indiana's legal limit of 0.08%, according to an affidavit.

Defence attorney Jorge Torres spoke Wednesday after a Marion County judge entered a not guilty plea for his client, 37-year-old Manuel Orrego-Savala.

Manuel Orrego-Savala, a citizen of Guatemala, leaves a court hearing Tuesday, Feb. 6, 2018, in Indianapolis. His other aliases include variations on the spelling of Orrego-Savala.

"I didn't know anything about him until I started getting the calls this morning", Wagstaffe said, adding that Orrego-Savala's case files have been "long destroyed" after the county transitioned to an electronic record-keeping system.

"May God comfort the family of Edwin Jackson who was killed by a drunk illegal alien who never should have been here", Gosar tweeted Monday.

Orrego-Savala had returned to San Francisco by March 26, 2009, when ICE agents arrested him again. He was convicted of driving without a license a year ago in Boone County, Ind. under an alias, Boone Country Prosecutor Todd Meyer said in a news release.

Orrego-Savala told an Indianapolis judge Tuesday, through an interpreter: "I wasn't driving the auto". He faces up to 10 years in prison on the immigration charge, which the USA attorney's office said would be handled after any state charges are resolved.

Redskins take into consideration tagging Cousins
There's a chance that Cousins could be the quarterback that's missing for each of those teams, putting them all on level footing. However, tagging Cousins would add further complications, since Washington could not trade him until he signs the franchise tag.

Orrego-Savala had a 2005 conviction for driving under the influence in Redwood City, California.

When Orrego-Savala appeared Tuesday before a judge who advised him of his rights, he told the judge through an interpreter: "I wasn't driving the vehicle".
