Kathleen Sloan, 20, Faces Multiple Charges Including MurderEL CAJON, Calif. — A preliminary hearing is scheduled Wednesday for a young Lakeside woman who allegedly was under the influence of an over-the-counter depressant at the time of a head-on freeway crash that killed a man in the other vehicle. Kathleen Lucinda Sloan is charged with murder, gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated, felony DUI causing great bodily injury and hit-and-run. A judge will decide at the end of the preliminary hearing whether the defendant should stand trial. About 3 p.m. Nov. 1, the 20-year-old defendant was driving a sport utility vehicle on Interstate 8 near Dunbar Lane, just west of Alpine, when she pulled to the shoulder, made a U-turn and headed west in the eastbound lanes, Deputy District Attorney Luis Mendez said earlier.
