SANTA BARBARA, Calif. (AP) — The U.S. Justice Department is looking into the aftermath of a deadly car accident last year that sent a former California congressional aide to prison.

The office of Rep. Lois Capps says Thursday it welcomes the inquiry into events that occurred after December's accident in Santa Barbara.

A former Capps field representative, Raymond Morua, hit 27-year-old Mallory Dies as she crossed a street.

He pleaded guilty to gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated and last month was sentenced to 20 years to life in prison.

The inquiry was first reported by the Santa Barbara News-Press.

Capps, a Democrat, is facing a tough re-election fight in her district that includes Santa Barbara and a swath of the Central Coast.
