The victim in the accident was Tynielle Silvera, and 18-year-old student returning from a tutoring job. The mother, Yolanda Silvera, screamed out “Murderer! Murderer!” as Serwan was arraigned on DWI charges at district court yesterday.
Serwan has a prior DWI conviction from 1992 and is currently being held on $200,000 bail.
