A judge on Wednesday set a Sept. 28 preliminary hearing for Corundolus Demone Toussaint, 39, and he is back in jail on $140,000 bail.
Andres Perkins, 21, a pedestrian, was killed Feb. 24 at 2:45 a.m. on Interstate 5 near an Old Town Avenue exit. Toussaint allegedly abandoned his girlfriend’s car with blood on the windshield on Pacific Highway.
Toussaint had posted $50,000 bond on the condition he wear a device that measures any alcohol use, but he failed to get such a device and then didn’t show up in court.
Deputy District Attorney Karra Reedy said Toussaint could post bond again but must get the device in order to be released. His last address is in Perris, California, but a former attorney said he works in San Diego.
Reedy cited public safety as a reason to include the device as a bond condition. Reedy said the license plate of the 2004 Honda off on the freeway near Perkins’ body.
Toussaint has pleaded not guilty. Andres Perkins was from Menifee, Calif.
