New developments were brought forward Tuesday morning in the case against Anthony Cesar, the man accused of drinking, driving and crashing his car, killing a woman last summer.
In the Rockingham County Circuit Court in Harrisonburg, Cesar pleaded guilty to the involuntary manslaughter charge he was facing.
Cesar was quiet while the Assistant Commonwealth's Attorney read a summary of the events that happened on August 25, 2010.
He said he understood the charges brought against him, and the court later ruled to dismiss his driving while intoxicated charge.
Family members of Jennifer Moreland, who died in the crash, were in the court room listening to the proceedings.
Afterward, David Moreland issued a comment on behalf of the family:
"Jennifer was a magnetic girl who was a giver, not a taker. We're still devastated over her death, and we are taking this case one step at a time. We believe Tuesday's developments were a step in the right direction."
On May 6, Cesar will head back to court for his sentencing hearing.
Moreland's family said they will be there for the hearing, and they're looking forward for the case to be over.
