LOS ANGELES (AP) - A Los Angeles man has been found guilty of killing his girlfriend and attempting to kill six of her family members when he drove an SUV into their home.

Prosecutors said in a statement Tuesday that Eduardo Villareal was convicted of murder and attempted murder for the Cadillac Escalade crash in Boyle Heights on Halloween night, 2010 that killed Zurisaday Bonilla.

Villareal and Bonilla’s newborn baby was also killed in the crash but a mistrial was declared on that count. Prosecutors have not said whether they will retry Villareal on that count.

Bonilla’s parents, three siblings and a 3-year-old child from a previous relationship were also in the house.

Villareal told police at the time that he deliberately drove into the house but was only trying to kill himself.
