A judge has increased bail to $2 million for the 22-year-old man charged with three counts of murder, felony drunken driving and other counts in the traffic collision death of Los Angeles Angels pitcher Nick Adenhart and two other people.

Orange County Superior Court Judge Roger B. Robbins continued Andrew Gallo's arraignment until June 8 at Monday's hearing. He did not enter a plea.

Police say the San Gabriel resident had nearly triple the legal blood-alcohol level when he ran a red light in his minivan Thursday and hit the car carrying Adenhart.

Also killed were the car's 20-year-old driver, Courtney Stewart of Diamond Bar, and 25-year-old passenger Henry Pearson of Manhattan Beach.

Officials say Gallo could get nearly 55 years to life in prison if convicted of all charges.
