Who Is Wynne Lee?

COSTA MESA (CBSLA) — Wynne Lee was arrested and charged in connection to the 55 Freeway road rage shooting that took the life of 6-year-old Aiden Leos on May 21.

Orange County District Attorney Todd Spitzer's Office Tuesday filed one felony count of being an accessory after the fact and a misdemeanor count of having a concealed firearm.

Her boyfriend, 24-year-old Marcus Anthony Eriz faces one count of murder and discharge of a gun at an inhabited dwelling. He also faces an enhancement for personal discharge of a firearm causing bodily injury and death.

Both are expected to appear in court Tuesday afternoon. Lee faces a maximum sentence of three years in prison, plus one year in jail. Eriz faces a maximum sentence of 40 years to life in prison if convicted on all counts.

California Highway Patrol detectives believe Lee was driving the car that was involved in the road rage incident, while Eriz was in the front passenger seat and committed the shooting itself.

The couple were arrested outside their Costa Mesa apartment Sunday night. CHP announced Monday that investigators located the vehicle they were driving and the firearm used in the shooting.


A memorial service for Leos was held Saturday.
