SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - A judge has ruled that a Sioux Falls man accused of driving drunk, crashing and killing a mother of six should remain jailed, but he lowered the bond to $100,000 cash.

The Argus Leader reports (https://argusne.ws/1kQmeLD ) that defense lawyer John Wilka asked Judge Mark Salter on Friday to lower Oscar Madrigal’s bond to $50,000 cash or surety.

Prosecutor Ryan Sage opposed the change, citing a prior DUI conviction and the case’s egregious nature.

The 20-year-old Madrigal faces several charges including manslaughter and vehicular homicide. Sioux Falls police say he ran a flashing red light early New Year’s Day in a Jeep and collided with a minivan.

Thirty-eight-year-old Tanya Sanchez was a passenger in the other vehicle and was killed.

Salter refused the surety bond option but lowered the amount.
