A Guatemalan man living illegally in the USA said little as he faced a judge after being charged in a drunken-driving crash that killed Indianapolis Colts linebacker Edwin Jackson and an Uber driver. Prosecutors said they were working with police on the investigation.

"We will vigorously prosecute this matter, just like any comparable crime, not because of the immigration status of an accused, but because two innocent men lost their lives in this terrible incident", Curry, a Democrat, said in a statement.

Marion County Prosecutor Terry Curry says he's disheartened by what he calls "ghoulish and inappropriate public commentary" surrounding the Sunday crash.

Colts owner Jim Irsay has offered to pay for both Jackson and Monroe's funerals, the team's chief operating officer, Pete Ward, said. "We will simply seek justice on behalf of the families of those two victims".

Prosecutors have charged an immigrant who was living illegally in IN in a drunken-driving crash that killed Indianapolis Colts linebacker Edwin Jackson and his Uber driver.

Investigators said Orrego-Savala was living illegally in the U.S.at the time of Sunday's crash.

Orrego-Savala was arrested by Immigration and Customs Enforcement in October 2006, and deported to Guatemala in January 2007, according to a federal criminal complaint.

Sochi congress agrees to set up Syrian constitutional commission
The final decision on who will work on the constitutional reform will be taken by United Nations envoy, Staffan de Mistura . The proposal was eventually by Iran and Turkey , guarantors of the Syrian peace process along with Russian Federation .

Instead, Williams says Trump needs to focus on the drunk driving problem in America - since the suspect was allegedly almost three times the legal limit when he struck and killed Jackson. This is just one of many such preventable tragedies.

He was briefly in court on Tuesday for an "advisement of rights" appearance ahead of his initial hearing, which will be held on Wednesday in Marion County Circuit Court. He was formally charged Wednesday with two counts of failure to remain at the scene of an accident and two counts tied to drunken driving death, reports the Star. Police said he was the driver and that he was drunk when the accident happened, with a blood alcohol level three times Indiana's legal limit.

"He's very distraught to say the least", Orrego Saval's attorney, Jorge Torres, said.

"It's really not an immigration story at all. We are shocked and saddened by this tragedy, and our thoughts and prayers are with the families of both men during this hard time". He was convicted of driving under the influence in Redwood City, Calif., in 2005, Alberico said.

Police say the 26-year-old Jackson and 54-year-old Uber driver Jeffrey Monroe were standing outside Monroe's vehicle along I-70 after Jackson became ill while Monroe was transporting him.

Mr Orrego-Savala was arrested after trying to flee the scene on foot, according to police, who also said the 37-year-old was intoxicated. He was also driving without a license.

When Orrego-Savala appeared Tuesday before a judge who advised him of his rights, he told the judge through an interpreter: "I wasn't driving the auto". Jackson and Monroe were standing outside the driver's vehicle before being hit by a pickup truck, according to police.
