Guam - 16-year-old Kevin Liasiolagi is being held on $100,000 dollars cash bail at the Department of Youth Affairs. The Yona teen is charged with manslaughter, vehicular and negligent homicide, and five counts of reckless driving with injuries. 

Liasiolagi was the driver of a Nissan Altima that crashed in Talofofo back in April, resulting in the death of Zachery Leonen. According to court documents, the teens had been drinking vodka when Liasiolagi, who didn't have a driver's license and was under the influence of alcohol, got behind the wheel, lost control and struck a concrete utility pole.  Traffic investigators have determined he was going more than double the posted speed limit at the time of the crash.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled for August 12.
