Police have made a second arrest in the deadly hit and run that took the life of a pregnant teen back in mid-November of last year.

EPPD's Crimes Against Persons unit arrested 17-year old David Cazares, who is now charged with two counts of Murder. He was booked into the El Paso County Jail on bonds totaling $1,000.000.00.

According to police, David Cazares was identified as the passenger in the vehicle that ran over  Alma Reaux and her 13 week old fetus.

Officials alleged that David Cazares took drugs from the victim as they met in the street and held them out Reaux's reach. When she attempted to reach for the drugs, the vehicle drove away, running her over.

Last month police arrested 38-year-old Ruben Cazares, who they allege was the driver of the vehicle.  Police say that both Ruben and David are related, but are not brothers.
