Walls man charged in fatal DeSoto Co. accident

HORN LAKE, Miss. (AP) - Authorities are charging a 23-year-old Walls man with DUI-death involving an October 21st traffic accident that killed a Charleston woman.

Feliciano Quezada-Gonzales is being held in the DeSoto County jail on a $250,000 bond after his arrest last week.

The Highway Patrol said Quezada-Gonzales was driving a sport utility vehicle west on Goodman Road when he collided with a car driven by 61-year-old Evelyn McCord of Memphis.

A passenger in the McCord vehicle, 53-year-old Patricia Booker, was killed in the collision. McCord has recovered from her injuries.

DeSoto County Sheriff's Department Chief Steve Atkinson said Quezada-Gonzales was arrested four days after the accident after tests indicated he was driving under the influence.

Atkinson did not say what the man's blood alcohol level was. A blood alcohol level of more than 0.08 percent is considering legally intoxicated in Mississippi.
