Police: Man to face child murder charge in fiery Vegas crash
LAS VEGAS (AP) — Authorities in Las Vegas are seeking a man on murder by child abuse and other charges in a fiery crash that killed his 10-year-old nephew and seriously injured two adults.
Police said Wednesday that 23-year-old Jonathan Mora hasn’t been found since the Sept. 15 wreck at a southeast Las Vegas crossroads.
Court records show Mora also is sought on multiple felony hit-and-run and reckless driving charges.
Police say a Nissan Altima with Mora driving may have been going more than 100 mph (161 kph) when it slammed into a Toyota Camry and caught fire.
Passers-by pulled Zion Jimenez and 20-year-old passenger Omar Moya-Luna from the wreckage.
Zion died several days later. A prosecutor says he was Mora’s nephew.
Police say Moya-Luna and the 62-year-old driver of the Toyota were seriously hurt.
