Indianapolis prosecutor blasts Trump for politicizing football player death

The charges are two counts of failure to remain at the scene of an accident causing death and two counts of causing death when operating a motor vehicle with an ACE of at least.15.

Orrego-Savala was deported from the U.S.in 2007 and 2009 and was now living in the US illegally.

Police say the 26-year-old Jackson and his 54-year-old Uber driver, Jeffrey Monroe, were standing outside Monroe's vehicle along the interstate when they were struck by a pickup truck Orrego-Savala was driving. Orrego-Savala's blood alcohol level was 0.239 at the time of the crash - three times the legal limit. Police later said the suspect was in the USA illegally and had been deported twice.

Republican U.S. Rep. Todd Rokita said Monday in a statement after police released details on Orrego-Savala that "the loss of life at the hands of illegal immigrant criminals should make all Hoosiers sad and ultimately angry". He notes that Orrego-Savala has been living in IN for several years and doing construction work in the Indianapolis area. ICE said it has placed an immigration detainer on Orrego-Savala at the Marion County Jail.

In this darkest moment, we choose to remember Edwin for the wonderful things he accomplished in his short time on earth, including the Edwin Jackson 53 Foundation that he started to empower athletes and youth.

Marion County prosecutor Terry Curry said in a statement that his office would prosecute the case because of the deaths, not because the suspect was in the United States illegally.

The unauthorized immigrant suspected of killing Colts linebacker Edwin Jackson and his Uber driver in a drunk-driving crash is facing state and federal felony charges.

Orrego-Savala was arrested shortly after the crash. Police reported they believe he was intoxicated and driving without a license.

Orrego-Savala told an Indianapolis judge Tuesday, through an interpreter: "I wasn't driving the auto". Federal and county prosecutors spell his name as "Orrego-Zavala" in charging documents, but his attorney said his name is spelled Orrego-Savala, a spelling listed among his aliases in the federal documents. "Sessions directed all federal prosecutors to prioritize charging aliens that illegally re-enter the country, especially if they are a risk to public safety or there is a criminal history present". Authorities say the driver that struck them before dawn on Sunday tried to flee on foot but was quickly captured.

Manuel Orrego-Savala, a 37-year-old citizen of Guatemala, has been charged with "2 counts of leaving the scene of a fatal accident and 2 counts of drunk driving resulting in death", according to TMZ.

The suspect appeared Tuesday before a judge who advised him of his rights. Another court hearing was scheduled for Wednesday.

"I don't know why I'm here", Orrego-Savala said. Jackson and Monroe were standing outside the driver's auto before being hit by a pickup truck, according to police.
