Guam – The Guam Attorney General has charged Endy Timoti with Murder in a traffic collission that claimed the life of Anna Sterling Monday afternoon.
The 43 year old Timoti was arrested Monday night by Guam Police on charges of vehicular homicide and DUI.
But Assistant Attorney General James Collins on Tuesday explained the additional charges in the Magistrate’s complaint citing Timoti’s 2 prior DUI convictions and pointing out that on Monday morning, less than 8 hours prior to the fatal accident, Timoti had been in Superior Court on a third DUI charge. Monday afternoon he was on felony release and under orders not to drink and not to drive when he got behind the wheel of a Toyota Matrix and collided with Sterling’s Harley Davidson.
The additional charges are included in the Magistrate’s report which lists Murder as a 1st Degree Felony including a Special Allegation of “Possession and Use of a Deadly Weapon in the Commission of a Felony” and a “Notice of Commission of a Felony Committed While on Felony Release.” among numerous other allegations.
It happened around 5 pm, Sterling was riding her 2008 Harley Davidson “Night Rod” south on Route 2 in Agat, by the 76 gas station. Timoti was operating a 2003 Toyota Matrix traveling north in the “southbound lane.”
GPD Sgt. Mike Aguon says witnesses saw Sterling try and avoid the collision, and eventually she laid the bike down and slide under the Matrix. She got pinned beneath the vehicle, said Aguon, and had to be “extracted.”
Sterling was rushed to Naval Hospital. CPR was performed on her en-route. She was pronounced dead at 5:54pm. Sterling suffered “a large laceration to the chin, a fractured femur and major blunt trauma to the head and Torso.”
According to the Magistrate’s complaint, Timoti had a blood alcohol content of .264, more than 3-times the legal limit of .08. Witnesses at the scene of the accident say Timoti got out of his car and “repeatedly stated ‘his fault’ and ‘not me’.”
