Victor allegedly got out of his car, and Esser entered her vehicle, continued arguing with Victor, and then drove off. The D.A.’s Office said Esser turned around and drove toward Victor before making a U-turn and allegedly intentionally driving into Victor.
Victor reportedly flew up onto the hood and windshield of the car and landed on the street.
The D.A.’s Office said Esser was charged with one felony count of murder and faces a maximum sentence of 25 years to life if convicted. Her arraignment is scheduled for Oct. 13, and she remains held on $1 million bail.
In a statement, Orange County District Attorney Todd Spitzer said, "This action showed a complete disregard for human life."
Spitzer continued, "The Orange County District Attorney’s Office will ensure that this random act of violence targeting a stranger will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law."
