Mother and Daughter Fatally Struck by Car Running Red Light After Drake Concert

St. Louis prosecutors have charged a 22-year-old man in connection with the deaths of a Chicago mother and daughter who were struck by a Jeep Cherokee after attending a Drake concert.

The defendant, Monte Henderson of suburban St. Louis, is charged with first-degree involuntary manslaughter and armed criminal action.

The tragedy happened in the early hours of February 14th, causing shockwaves across the town. Laticha Bracero, 42, and her daughter, Alyssa Cordova, 21, were crossing a downtown roadway when they were fatally hit by Henderson’s car.

According to police investigations, Henderson was allegedly racing through red lights when his Jeep Cherokee collided with another car, striking Bracero and Cordova.

The victims had flown to St. Louis to see Drake perform the night before, emphasizing the tragic turn of events that ended what was supposed to be a great experience. As families mourn the loss of their loved ones, the community is left to deal with the repercussions of yet another needless tragedy.

Monte Henderson’s bond was set at $200,000, but a judge allowed him to post only 10% of it in cash to ensure his release.
