The charges for Tony Santiago who allegedly hit and killed a 9-year-old were dropped Wednesday.
In May 2016, Tony Santiago pulled out of the driveway of his girlfriend’s house in Oildale after a domestic dispute and hit her 9-year-old son as well as a 12-year-old.
The 12-year-old only suffered minor injuries but 9-year-old Justin Paz died at the hospital.
Santiago was charged with two counts of willful cruelty to a child. Paz's mother, Clara Rose Marshall, was also charged with two counts of willful cruelty to a child.
