Complaint to be amended in McCavitt case

By From page A3 | April 10, 2013

A man accused of killing a woman in a DUI head-on collision appeared for a handful of minutes in court Monday afternoon.

Judge Douglas C. Phimister announced that deputy district attorney Michael Pizzuti had filed a proposed amended complaint against Joshua McCavitt. A hearing set for April 10 at 1 p.m. in Department 7, originally a preliminary hearing, was changed for further proceedings concerning the proposed amended complaint.

McCavitt had allegedly been driving his 1999 Chevy Silverado westbound on Pony Express Trail at 10:14 p.m. on Sept. 13, 2012, when he crossed the yellow line of a curve into the path of Denise Caldwell, 50, of Camino, driving a 2012 Suburu Legacy eastbound on Pony Express. Both vehicles were flipped onto their roofs. Caldwell was pronounced dead at the scene. McCavitt pleaded no contest in February to an unrelated possession of marijuana for sale charge.
