According to the family, the hearing will continue until Friday.
Monique Munoz’s family listened to the heartbreaking testimony when the demonstrators chanted outside the Inglewood Juvenile Court on Wednesday.
“I was sitting there watching the accident happen … it was devastating to see my niece die in the car,” said Munoz’s uncle Richard Cartier.
The 32-year-old was home from work when her sedan was attacked by a speed-violating black Lamborghini on February 17, officials said.
According to police, it is estimated that the teenager was driving more than 100 mph when Munoz was beaten and killed.
A teenage driver, then 17 years old, was charged as a boy. As part of the deal, he pleaded guilty to manslaughter in the case. He has been under house arrest since the day of the crash.
As a minor, the teen’s name has not been published. He is now 18 years old, but his identity has not been disclosed by the authorities.
The Munoz family told ABC7 that this week’s hearing was like a “relive a nightmare” and hoped that the wealth of the teenage family would not affect the outcome of the decision.
“We never feel the whole thing,” said Munoz’s cousin Stephanie Crespin. “There is no sentence that makes us feel completely. We fought for justice for Monique last month. We just felt we had to fight from the beginning, so we didn’t even have the opportunity to mourn properly. To sue. “
Munoz’s family said they were likely to issue a statement on the impact on victims on Friday. On the same day, the judge is expected to hand down the teenage decision.
