BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - A judge has dismissed charges against an Oildale couple accused in a domestic dispute that ended with a child run over and killed.
Tony Ronald Santiago and Clara Rose Marshall each faced two counts of willful cruelty to a child. Those charges were dismissed Wednesday during their preliminary hearing.
The CHP says in May 2016, Santiago and Marshall were in an argument at their home.
As Santiago backed out at a high rate of speed, running over both of Marshall's children, who gathered out front.
Marshall's 9-year-old son died, her teenage son suffered minor injuries.
