Barrios testifies

Former WBO super-featherweight champion Jorge Barrios testified yesterday before a prosecutor in a murder case in which he is accused of killing a 20 year old pregnant woman called Yamila Vanesa González in a car accident in which six others were injured Sunday afternoon. Witnesses said Barrios, 33, ran a red light and struck another car in the coastal city of Mar del Plata, about 400 kilometers (250 miles) southeast of Buenos Aries. Barrios was driving a BMW X5 truck over the speeding limit when he lost control. The force of the crash carried the second vehicle into the path of seven pedestrians, killing González and her female six month fetus. Witnesses said Barrios fled the scene and struck another car as he drove away. Seven hours after he turned himself in at a police station with his lawyer accompanying him. His attorney says that Barrios has no criminal record and he expects the fighter will be set free on bail.
