Illegal alien Eduardo De La Lima-Vargas was sentenced to 12 years and 6 months in prison for killing a Salem couple while driving drunk.
Lima-Vargas was drunk when he ran a red light and hit Logan and Jessica Wilson, a couple riding on a motorcycle.
The Statesman Journal reported:
A Hubbard man was sentenced to 12 years and six months in prison Wednesday for hitting and killing a Salem couple while driving drunk.
About two dozen of the victims’ friends and family members filled the courtroom during the sentencing of Eduardo De La Lima-Vargas.
The case proved to be contentious due to the defendant’s immigration status. According to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials, De La Lima-Vargas is a citizen of Mexico residing illegally in the United States.
De La Lima-Vargas, 40, of Hubbard, was driving his truck pulling an occupied horse trailer on Mission Street near Interstate 5 on Aug. 19 when he ran a red light and hit a motorcycle carrying Logan Wilson, 34, and Jessica Wilson, 32.
De La Lima-Vargas was arrested on two counts of first-degree manslaughter, DUI, reckless driving and two counts of reckless endangerment following the deadly crash.
