Fairfax County prosecutors dropped a charge Tuesday in a road rage incident that left a man dead from injuries he sustained, but new charges are likely to be filed in the case.
Librado Cena, 57, the director of religious education at St. Leo the Great Catholic Church in Fairfax, was facing one count aggravated malicious wounding in the April incident, but it was filed before 63-year-old William Hay’s O’Brien had died.
“The case is still actively under investigation,” said Deputy Commonwealth’s Attorney Robert D. McClain
Cena told Fairfax City police that O’Brien had honked at him a number of times while he was stopped at red lights on April 16, so Cena followed him into the Fairfax City Mall parking lot and confronted him.
O’Brien was injured in an altercation that ensued and died about 10 days later.
