“Wayne Rino Antoniazzo, 22, of Campbelltown, allegedly ran over Amaranta Vrinalin Vega, 18, in the Canberra suburb of Gungahlin early on January 1.
In the ACT Magistrates Court today, the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) upgraded the manslaughter charge to murder. ”
…”The DPP believes there is evidence to suggest Mr Antoniazzo’s actions were not accidental.
Preliminary evidence suggests Mr Antoniazzo knew Ms Vega was on the road and that he sped up and did not swerve before hitting her.”
…”Today in court Mr Antoniazzo pleaded not guilty to murder. He was remanded in custody and will reappear in court next week.”
