As predicted, charges upgraded in American Idol case

As I predicted a few hours ago, Daniel Bark is now facing some additional charges aggravated manslaughter, death by auto and eluding police, all related to the death of American Idol contestant Alexis Cohen.  His bail is now set at $150,000. 

I think the Agg Man charges are going to be tough for the State to prove here because Bark was not arrested until the next day.  Thus, it will be tough for the State to prove that he was highly intoxicated which is usually required for an Agg Man charges in this context.  Thus, my guess is a plea is eventually worked out for about 10 years. 

Story is here.
