Charges filed against 2 women in teen's alcohol-related death



CHEHALIS, Wash - Two women were charged Wednesday by the Lewis County Prosecutor’s Office in connection with the death of a Chehalis teenager.


Prosecutor Jonathan Meyer told KIRO 7 Eyewitness News that Talia Date and Megan Day, both 22 years old, face 13 criminal charges each in connection with the death of 16-year-old Tyler Gonzalez.


Date and Day allegedly brought hard liquor and beer for a teen party at a Chehalis home in May.


According to prosecutors, Gonzalez was at the party, got drunk and wandered onto a road.


Gonzalez, dressed in dark clothing, was lying down in the 100 block of Brockway Road when a driver came around a corner and struck him.  He later died.


Police said his postmortem blood alcohol level was 0.17.


Date and Day are facing six counts of furnishing liquor to a minor and seven counts of reckless endangerment.


KIRO 7 obtained surveillance video that prosecutors said that shows the two women purchasing the alcohol the night of the party.
