SHARE POLICE SEEKING TEENAGER CHARGED IN TRAFFIC FATALITY

Police are seeking a teenager charged with deliberately killing another man in a traffic crash earlier this month.

The incident apparently stemmed from a lover's triangle, according to a complaint filed Thursday in 3rd Circuit Court charging Ceasar Rendon, 18, with second-degree murder.Rendon is accused of driving a Cadillac that forced a sports car into oncoming traffic on North Temple near 1100 West on Oct. 7.

The driver of the sports car, Honorio Guillen, 26, was crushed to death when his car collided with a motor home, according to the complaint.

The Cadillac, which a witness said was going at least 70 mph, crashed into a utility pole. Its occupants then fled.

The complaint states the victim had been involved romantically with the former wife of Rendon's uncle.

In addition to the homicide warrant, Rendon is wanted for failing to appear in court on two felony charges of possession of a controlled substance.

"We believe he's fled the area," said traffic Detective Jim Prior.
