Trial set for Quadlyn Gorong

Posted: Updated:

They called themselves the "Starsquad" - 16-year-old Saly Santos, 19-year-old Chericca Gallen, and 16-year-old Julia George - three best friends who did everything together. Back in November the girls were walking home from a friend's house late at night when they were hit and killed by a 2005 Nissan Sentra.

Today, the driver of the suspect car appeared in court.

Quadlyn Gorong sat quietly next to her attorney, Randy Cunliffe, Tuesday morning as Judge Maria Cenzon announced, "We're here on a trial setting on this matter. Have we received discovery on this case?" Cunliffe replied, "I have, Your Honor. I have a number of pictures and 330 pages of photos and police reports."

The 24-year-old woman will face a jury early next year after she reportedly turned herself into police soon after the triple fatal auto-ped in Yigo. Despite her confession, no action was taken until three months later when the court summoned for her to appear. This after a superior court grand jury handed down a true bill against her. Charges included manslaughter with a special allegation for possession and use of a deadly weapon in the commission of a felony, negligent homicide with a special allegation for possession and use of a deadly weapon in the commission of a felony, reckless driving with injuries, and reckless conduct.

In court Tuesday, Gorong who is currently on pre-trial release, listened as Judge Cenzon ordered the dates for her jury trial and selection. The judge said, "The court notes for the record as well you have filed a request for a jury of twelve. The court will grant the request - the court will issue the scheduling order in this case. Jury selection and trial will commence on January 27 at 1:30pm.

While she's on pre-trial release, Gorong is not allowed to operate a motor vehicle and she is also ordered to stay away from the victims' families.

Gorong's next court appearance is scheduled for June 2.
