A Fort Hood soldier, Cassandra Julianne Perez, 19, was standing next to her stalled car in Hidalgo County on February 15 when she was struck by a vehicle and killed.

Today Edward Leo Magallan, 25, went before a judge Saturday and was charged with intoxication manslaughter.

He chose to drink and drive, allegedly, and now two lives have been changed forever.

Now the man believed responsible for the death of an active duty service member has been charged with intoxication manslaughter.

CBS 4 News is reporting that Magallan's bond was set at $150,000. And he has to be alcohol free at all times. That includes carrying a portable hand device breathalyzer.
