Bail was increased to $1 million for the driver arrested in connection with the hit-and-run death of a Goleta couple.
The Santa Barbara County District Attorney's Office has charged Eric Mauricio Ramirez-Aguilar of Goleta with two counts of gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated, one count of fleeing the scene of an accident that resulted in death and one count of driving under the influence causing injury. He also faces special allegations for fleeing the scene after committing the offense of gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated, personally inflicting great bodily injury and causing death or bodily injury to multiple victims.
He pleaded not guilty Tuesday and is due back in court in March.
The 39-year-old was arrested Sunday night, just a few hours after Adolfo Corral Corral and Mary Jane Becerra Corral, both 44 of Goleta, were hit while walking near Cathedral Oaks and Winchester Canyon.
The Corrals, who both worked in education, leave behind four children.
Ramirez-Aguilar is scheduled for arraignment on March 9.
