A COUPLE was arrested on Sunday and are expected to be charged with murder over the “road rage” shooting that killed six-year-old Aiden Leos after a $500,000 reward was offered for information.
Eriz Marcus Anthony, 24, and Lee Wynne, 23, were arrested in their home in Costa Mesa, California Highway Patrol said, and will appear in court today.
Authorities said in a press release that they expect murder charges to be brought against the couple, according to CBS Los Angeles.
Aiden was fatally shot while riding in the back seat of his mother’s car last month after she reportedly angered another driver who cut her off on a highway in Orange, California.
The tragic incident unfolded on 55 freeway near Chapman at around 8am on May 21 as Aiden’s mother was driving him to kindergarten in her silver Chevrolet Sonic.
Aiden’s heartbreaking final words were said to be “Mommy, my tummy hurts.”
