Sad News From CO

Here's the story:

GOLDEN, Colo. -- A Lakewood man faces a first-degree murder charge for allegedly crashing an SUV into a tow truck driver at an accident scene early Sunday morning.
Zacharia Dobler, 28, was in court Wednesday where he was formally charged with murder, vehicular homicide, motor vehicle theft, leaving the scene of an accident and driving under the influence.
Authorities say Dobler was driving intoxicated in a Nissan Rogue when he struck 41-year-old Alan Dilley, who was in the process of hooking up a vehicle for towing near the intersection of 58th and Wadsworth Blvd.
Dilley was transported to a local hospital and pronounced dead.
Dobler was pulled over minutes later in the area of 64th and Wadsworth Boulevard.
Court records show Dobler has three previous convictions for driving while intoxicated, among other criminal counts.
Prosecutors say he was ordered to use an ignition interlock device, or a car breathalyzer, on his personal vehicle, but was instead driving another car on the morning of the crash.
He is being held without bond.
