“You don't sleep, it's fog, it's stupid -- there's no, it's stupid,” said Rodney Cox.

“Stupid” is one word Rodney Cox kept repeating as he spoke about what happened early Saturday morning to his wife of 35 years.


Thomas searched through records that showed Bonilla has been arrested for DUI before. He was arrested three times in 2011 for DUI.

This time, Bonilla is being held in jail without bond as this family makes funeral arrangements during the holidays.

“She was the best mother there was, she gave me everything I wanted,” said daughter Hope Cox.
