Jennifer Lynn DiCecco will face a preliminary hearing this week for her role in the DUI-related traffic deaths of a married couple on Pottstown Pike in February. Roque Rangel-Marmolejo and Maria Rangel-Gutierrez, both 63, were killed in a two-vehicle accident in West Goshen Township late on a Saturday night in February. The West Goshen Police Department responded to that collision in the 1000 block of Pottstown Pike. On arrival, two vehicles were located with severe front end damage. DiCecco was driving a 2018 Volvo S90, which had been traveling north on Pottstown Pike when it crossed into the south bound lanes of traffic and struck the couple’s 2007 maroon Ford Escape head on, killing them instantly. The 48-year-old DiCecco, who was taken to Paoli Memorial Hospital for treatment of injuries she suffered in the crash, told a West Goshen Detective that she had been drinking that evening, and had two “Fireballs on Ice,” a drink that combines cinnamon and whisky. She said she was “flying home on Route 100,” and “must have fallen asleep” before losing control of her car. DiCecco was arrested and charged on April 26. She was arraigned by Magisterial District Judge William Kraut of West Goshen, who set her bail at 10 percent of $25,000, which she posted. She is also charged with driving under the influence of alcohol highest tier and driving under the influence of a controlled substance. In addition to finding alcohol in her bloodstream, police said they also found evidence of amphetamine use, according to court documents.
