Man enters guilty plea in trick-or-treater's death

CREATED Jul. 2, 2012

Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Justin Caramancia entered a guilty plea Monday morning in the death of 12-year-old Faith Love on Halloween night of 2011.

Caramancia pleaded guilty to driving under the influence and is scheduled to be sentenced on November 5.

The accident happened just before 8:30 p.m. on Halloween night in a neighborhood near West Sahara Avenue and South Hualapai Way. Love was trick-or-treating with friends and family members.

Police say Caramanica's blood-alcohol percentage was just under the 0.08 percent blood-alcohol limit for driving in Nevada, but Caramanica also admitted to taking prescription drugs for an injury.

Love was not in a marked crosswalk at the time. After the incident, signs began appearing near the intersection warning people to slow down.

Love was a seventh-grade student at Rogich Middle School.
