Erie County District Attorney John J. Flynn announces that 34-year-old Antonio D.

It is alleged that on Sunday, October 27, 2019, at approximately 2:37 a.m., the defendant was driving a Maserati, while under the influence of alcohol, at a high-rate of speed northbound on Seneca Street in the City of Buffalo when his vehicle collided with a Toyota Yaris near Pomona Place.

The driver of the Toyota, 33-year-old Anthony Twentyfive, III, and his passenger, 32-year-old Kristin N. LaBruno, were both transported to the hospital where they died from their injuries. The cause of death for both victims was determined to be blunt force trauma.

The defendant and his female passenger were taken to ECMC to be treated for non-life threatening injuries.

Judge Case set bail at $50,000. A return court date has not been scheduled at this time.

If convicted on all charges, Brown faces a maximum of 25 years in prison.

DA Flynn commends the Buffalo Police Department Accident Investigation Unit for their work in the investigation. 

The case is being prosecuted by Assistant District Attorney Christopher M. McCarthy of the DA’s Vehicular Crimes Unit and Assistant District Attorney Ashley M. Morgan of the DA’s Homicide Bureau.
