Andrew Milonis,44, was charged in a Mother’s Day crash that killed a mother and her unborn baby. Milonis is facing a number of charges including eight felony counts in the fatal crash. He entered a plea of Not Guilty to all charges at his arraignment. The El Cajon judge increased his bail from $1 Million to $3 Million and ordered the defendant to wear a SCRAM bracelet as a condition of his release. The SCRAM Continuous Alcohol Monitor will test for alcohol every 30 minutes and immediately report any consumption of alcohol. Milonis is also required to wear a drug patch while he is released awaiting trial. He faces 40 years to life in prison if convicted of all counts.
According to the California Highway Patrol, the accident occurred at around 6:46 pm. 29-year-old Jessica Foderingham was driving on San Vicente Road when she was struck and killed. Authorities believe that Milonis rear-ended the woman causing her vehicle to strike a tree in the center divider. Foderingham was pronounced dead at the scene. She was 34 weeks pregnant with a daughter. She leaves behind a husband and two young boys. Milonis fled the scene of the accident calling a Lyft a short time later. According to a witness, Milonis was intoxicated and had damage to his SUV. He was arrested by CHP at a tavern later that day.
