Deadly DUI suspect arrested again in domestic violence case
BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KBAK/KBFX) A man who is already facing charges of second-degree murder, gross vehicular manslaughter and DUI was arrested again Friday morning, this time on suspicion of inflicting corporal injury on a spouse or cohabitant.
Joseph Maine, 26, was arrested by police and is currently in Kern County jail.
In the ongoing case, Maine is accused of driving drunk and causing a crash in January that killed a pregnant woman, 22-year-old Vanessa Carillo, and her unborn daughter.
Maine faces five felony charges from the alleged DUI crash, but he was released on a surety bond.
A police report shows Maine admitted to driving drunk and causing the crash at Fairview Road and Monitor Street. The report states Maine told officers that "his drinking and driving were the cause of this collision," and Maine told officers "he should be arrested and given the death penalty."
Investigators determined his pickup was traveling 60 mph in a 40 mph zone just seconds before the crash, according to the police report.
Police haven't released any details on Friday's arrest.
