COFFEE COUNTY, Ala. (WDHN) — An Enterprise man accused of killing a woman in a May car accident, will stand before a grand jury in the coming months.

Alex Rivera-Hernandez is currently in the Coffee County Jail being held on a $75,000 bond for the alleged murder of Giselle Burgos-Santiago.

Burgos-Santiago was the passenger of a car driven by Rivera-Hernandez in the New Hope community in Coffee County on May 12th.

The car left the road and hit several trees. Burgos-Santiago was ejected from the car and was pronounced dead at the scene.

Rivera-Hernandez was then transported to a Montgomery hospital and then hours later was charged for Burgos-Santiago’s death.

Burgos-Santiago’s family through a GoFundMe was able to raise $1,055 to move her remains back to her roots in Puerto Rico.

Originally in the case, Rivera-Hernandez waived his preliminary hearing and waived having a court-appointed attorney until Rivera-Hernandez is able to speak with his family.

Now, Rivera-Hernandez and his attorney have officially pled not guilty in the case.

During the hearing, they were also denied a reduction in bond and Rivera-Hernandez will now await a decision from a Coffee County grand jury in October.
