SALINAS — A man from Texas is behind bars awaiting his sentencing for vehicular manslaughter and leaving the scene of an accident. 23-year-old Anthony Bouchereau was convicted on March 9th and is due for sentencing on April 7.

Almost two years ago, Bouchereau was driving with a friend, Yesenia Romero, down North Madeira at double the speed limit. He ran a red light and collided with a van that had been making a left turn. The van was sent spinning through the intersection and Bouchereau’s right front door was ripped from the vehicle. Now with nothing between her and the open air, Romero was thrown from the vehicle.

After stopping, Bouchereau ran to Romero and found her dead. He then fled the scene with her phone. Two days later, her family texted the phone hoping to get it back. Bouchereau demanded money for it and the family agreed to meet him, at which point they detained him until police arrived.

Bouchereau was found guilty of felony vehicular manslaughter with gross negligence and felony hit and run causing death. He faces a maximum of 12 years in state prison.
