◾ NJ woman killed months before graduation

◾ Driver accused of being drunk, speeding

◾ Family raised thousands for funeral costs

HAMILTON A 25-year-old woman has been indicted on a criminal charge in Atlantic County, accused of driving drunk when she killed another young woman who was on the verge of graduating college.

Alexia Glass, of Mays Landing, was indicted for first-degree aggravated manslaughter, in connection with the recent death of 22-year-old Yolanda Pacheco.

On March 28, just before 12:30 a.m., Pacheco was driving in Hamilton Township on Route 322 when her car was struck by a speeding Toyota Corolla, driven by Glass.

Pacheco, known to loved ones as "JoJo," had grown up in Mount Holly, and was living in Egg Harbor City where she attended Stockton University, according to her online obituary.

She was due to graduate last month, with a bachelor’s degree in psychology.

A GoFundMe campaign setup by her grieving mother raised over $20,000 for Pacheco’s funeral expenses.

In an April update, Patricia Helmick wrote “We want to thank everyone for their donations. Yolanda would be amazed seeing all the love."

She continued "She was one of a kind for sure. Always willing and ready to help others anyway she can. She was small but mighty. She is so missed.”
