Posted by wlpo on October 21, 2016

The trial for an Ottawa woman who was charged following a fatal crash in March has been pushed back again

Samantha Orozco appeared in court Friday where her lawyer asked that the trial be taken off of the schedule until Judge Cynthia Raccuglia could rule on some motions. The trial had been set for October 31st.

Orozco was arrested back in June for her role in the March crash on Champlain Street in Ottawa which killed her passenger, 31-year old Shalane Stevens of Ottawa. According to police, Orozco had been under the influence at the time of the accident. As a result, she was charged with four counts of Aggravated DUI.

She remains in the LaSalle County Jail needing $50,000 cash to get out. She’s due back in court for a hearing on the motions November 3rd.
