Nathan Campbell had been charged with murder, 16 counts of assault with a deadly weapon, and 17 counts of hit-and-run after allegedly driving a 2008 Dodge Avenger through a crowd of people on the boardwalk in Venice on Aug. 3.

Alice Gruppioni, 32, an Italian tourist who was in Los Angeles on her honeymoon, was struck and killed during the ramage, according to the LAPD.

Nathan Campbell was arrested in connection with a deadly hit-and-run on the Venice boardwalk.

Gruppioni’s aunt attended Tuesday’s hearing, saying she was looking for justice in Alice’s name.

British tourist Katriye Marshall, 30, was among the witnesses and victims were testified about the scene that day.

Marchall told the judge that she saw Gruppioni lying face down and motionless after she was struck.

Campbell is a native of Colorado who may have been living in his car at the time of the crash.

A judge will decide whether there is enough evidence for Campbell to stand trial on the charges.
