FOX 5 reported:
Esteysi Izazaga Sanchez, who goes by Stacy, was ordered held on $1.5 million bail.
Deputy District Attorney Aimee McLeod called the defendant “a great danger to the public.”
The prosecutor said 69-year-old Jack Ray Tenhulzen was walking along the 4000 block of Mission Avenue about 6:30 a.m. Monday when Sanchez hit him so hard that it stripped him of some of his clothing.
Sanchez, 29, drove for at least a half-mile with the victim’s body partially inside her Pontiac sedan and his detached leg on the trunk of her car before pulling into a cul-de-sac on Magdalena Drive, authorities said.
The defendant ran to her home — located about a block away — and was arrested by police an hour later, the prosecutor said. Sanchez still had shards of glass in her hair when she was taken into custody, McLeod said.
