Baby born moments before mother dies remains in hospital
Jeremiah Jobb accused of drunk driving causing death in crash that killed mother, and friend
A baby whose mother was killed in a car crash by an alleged drunk driver in Prince Albert, Sask. remains in critical condition.
Brandy Lepine, 17, was a passenger in a car driven by her friend Taylor Litwin, 21, when they collided with another vehicle at the intersection of 28th Street and 12th Avenue East in the early morning of July 14.
Jeremiah Jobb, 21, who has been accused of impaired driving causing the death of both women, made a brief appearance in court Monday.
Lepine was pregnant at the time of the crash. Both women were killed, but doctors were able to save the baby. Aurora Ledoux was delivered just before her mother died.
The baby's grandmother Josephine Ledoux told CBC News Aurora remains in critical condition in a Saskatoon hospital, but she has been able to see and touch the infant.
"It felt so warming and touching," said Ledoux. "Like when the nurses touch her, she's like fidgety and agitated and moving everywhere, but when I touched her she was calm."
But the joy is bittersweet for Ledoux, who remains very upset about the deaths.
"I'm really mad," said Ledoux. "I'm really mad that it took two lives. And now my granddaughter is lying in a hospital."
Jobb has been remanded in custody and is due back in court for a bail hearing on July 31.
