SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) — Prosecutors say they want a California man held without bail after charging him with the murder of a 6-year-old boy in a road rage incident.
Orange County prosecutors wrote in court papers this week that 24-year-old suspect Marcus Eriz told police he grabbed a gun, rolled down the window, and shot at a car driven by a woman after she made a rude gesture toward him on the freeway. Authorities say the shot last month killed the boy as he sat in a booster seat in the back of his mother's car on his way to kindergarten.
