A former Texas State University student said in court Thursday that she's guilty in a deadly drunk driving crash from 2016. She hit another vehicle killing Fabian Guerrero, a San Marcos resident, injuring his wife, Kristian Guerrero, and killing their unborn child as a result of injuries sustained in the crash.
During the trial, jurors heard from Kristian Guerrero, the woman who lost her child and husband in the crash.
Fabian Guerrero-Moreno, right, was killed and his wife Kristian Nicole Guerrero, left, was injured when a drunk driver crashed into their vehicle in 2016. "As soon as the accident happened I knew that I had made the worst decision ever", testified Elliott. Her unborn child did not survive.
"Everything's different, everything", said Guerrero.
Guerrero-Moreno died at the scene and, although doctors tried to save the baby by inducing labor, the child was stillborn.
"I got to hold him, I got to look at him", said Geurrero. She admitted to using heroin and marijuana in efforts to sober up before driving. "My heart will always be broken", said Guerrero.
Elliott's blood alcohol level was.199 when she was taken to hospital after the crash.
In video film appeared to the jury and seen by KXAN, a swimsuit clad Elliott is seen attempting to breeze through a temperance test, and asking the cops how the couple was doing, saying: "Slaughter me now".
A Hays County Sheriffs Deputy testified Tuesday to finding several drugs at the home where Elliott lived while executing a search warrant for another person who lived in the home.
Prosecuting attorneys asked the jury to decide the "appropriate punishment for lives destroyed".
Family of the 22-year-old is pushing for probation as punishment.
