Bail set for Evangelista's mother, godmother

by Mindy Aguon

Guam - Bail was set at $50,000 each for the mother and godmother of 9-year-old Brandon Evangelista. The boy was riding on the trunk of his mother's car on Sunday evening near Tanguisson when he fell off and was struck by a car and dragged.

According to the magistrate's complaint, the boy's mother, Rose Marie Evangelista, originally told police someone in a blue sedan struck her son and fled.  She later admitted that her son fell of the car and was struck by another car following behind, driven by his godmother, Theodora Hernandez.

Roy Sahagon Cruz, Jr. initially told police he was driving the car but later recanted the story.  His father, Roy Cruz, Sr., also gave conflicting statements to police. 

A preliminary hearing is scheduled for June 18.  All four remain in custody behind bars.
