Derick Michael Garcia, 25, of Sacramento, pleaded not guilty on April 1 to charges of corporal injury to a spouse, assault by means likely to produce great bodily injury, possession of drug paraphernalia, and a special allegation for domestic violence.

Garcia is accused of injuring his wife in a jealous rage on Dec. 28, 2019, at the Econo Lodge, in Williams, in which he hit her in the face, threatened to kill her, and choked her into unconsciousness, according to testimony at his March 25 preliminary hearing. Garcia was arrested by a Williams police officer shortly after the incident, and was in possession of a glass pipe used for smoking methamphetamine, court records indicate. He remains out of jail on $50,000 bond. Trial will be set in Colusa County Superior Court on May 27.

A jury trial is scheduled to be set in Sutter County Superior Court on May 15 for the Meridian man charged in connection to the fatal vehicle collision two years ago that killed 48-year-old Jose L. Velazquez Guerra and 58-year-old Deysi Reyes Turcios, both of Colusa.

The Sutter County District Attorney’s Office has charged Jacob Correia with vehicle manslaughter, with gross negligence, after the court determined at Correia’s March 23 preliminary hearing that there was insufficient evidence to charge him with two counts of second-degree murder.

According to the California Highway Patrol, Correia, who was 18 at the time of the collision, was reportedly speeding and distracted by his cellphone on Highway 20, near Yuba City, when he collided into the back of a pickup truck and then swerved into the eastbound lane, crashing head-on into another pickup, killing Guerra and Turcios.

Correia has also been charged with a special enhancement for having more than one victim as a result of the negligence, Sutter County court records indicate. Correia is out of jail on his own recognizance pending the outcome of the case, although the judge has imposed driving restrictions.
