Man Convicted of Murder in Collision that Killed 6-Year-Old Girl


A 56-year-old Anaheim man was convicted of second-degree murder Wednesday in an alcohol-fueled collision that killed a 6-year-old girl in Fullerton.

Maximino Delgado Lagunas was scheduled to be sentenced Sept. 9.

Normally, prosecutors would file voluntary manslaughter charges against a defendant in a fatal drunk driving collision, but when the suspect has been previously convicted of a DUI they can have charges upgraded to second-degree murder. Lagunas was convicted of drunk driving on Dec. 11, 2015, in Buena Park.
