SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — The family of a Seaside woman and her baby who were both struck and killed while attending a birthday party confronted the man suspected of running them down with his corvette while under the influence.
Members of Esperanza Morales’ family held up signs and shouted “your are a murderer” at Brian Jones, 35, of Livermore, as he walked out of the Alameda County courthouse Tuesday afternoon.
“How does it feel to kill two innocent people because you were drinking,” a woman screamed. “You need to be inside.”
Police arrested Jones on suspicion of gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated and another alcohol-related driving count. Jones was booked at Santa Rita Jail in Dublin, where he posted $350,000 bail Sunday.
Earlier today, prosecutors said they aren’t filing charges against Jones. However, prosecutors are still reviewing the case and could still file charges against him at a later time.

Following today’s court appearance, Morales’ family followed Jones and his attorney back to his car pushing signs into his face with the words “Killer” and “We want justice.” As Jones got into the rear seat of a Range Rover, the family covered the windshield with their signs. A woman riding in the front passenger seat of the SUV grabbed the signs and threw them on the street.
“I’m going to pray to God that you are haunted by their murder forever … every time that you breathe, every time you open your F—— eyes,” a woman shouted. “You don’t deserve to be breathing!”
