According to Daily Mail, Holloway is being held without bail and has been charged with murder, child abuse or neglect and failure to remain at the scene of an accident.

Jessica Valenzuela, 32, of Buckeye, Arizona died in the crash. She was reportedly visiting Las Vegas with her husband.


The crash took place at 6.40pm on Sunday in front of the Paris Hotel & Casino and Planet Hollywood, where the Miss Universe pageant was being held at the time. Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Deputy Chief Brett Zimmerman confirmed that the act was intentional.

Zimmerman added that a 3 year-old child was in the backseat at the time, but was not injured in the crash. Holloway also walked away from the crash uninjured.
