DUI suspect accused of killing teen driver appears in court

The man accused of causing a car crash that left a 16-year-old boy dead made his first appearance in a Las Vegas court Monday morning.

David Fensch, 47, is accused of rear-ending Jalean Fajardo's Honda Accord near Farm Road and Durango Drive on Thursday, Feb. 9.

The judge called Fensch, "An absolute danger to the Clark County community."

Fensch, who has four previous DUI's, is facing a felony vehicular manslaughter charge. He is also accused of speeding and driving without a license.

Fajardo's family members were in the courtroom for the hearing. After the hearing, they thanked the community for the outpouring of support they have received.

No bail was set.

The state asked for five days to file a criminal complaint. The judge will reassess bail at that time.

Fensch is currently being held in the Clark County Detention Center.

Fensch is due back in court on Feb. 21.
