Stuart Elder Arraigned

Court of Judge Russell Scott. Same as Deborah King and Aaron Corn.

Surrounded by a veritable human shield, 31-year-old Stuart Elder was arraigned Friday on charges of gross vehicular manslaughter in the deaths of two Pebble Beach women.

Elder, a luxury home builder out of Pacific Grove, was formally charged Monday, seven months after he was first arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence during the April 7 wreck. If convicted, he faces a maximum of 15 years in prison.

Linda Larone, 65, and Sharon Daly, 72, were killed in the accident that also seriously injured 20-year-old Selvia Gattis.

According to the Contractors State License Board, Elder is the sole proprietor of E.C.I. Building Inc., in Pacific Grove. His license was active as of Friday.
