    A bond hearing was postponed Monday for the 20-year-old man charged with aggravated driving under the influence in a deadly wrong-way crash this weekend on the Eisenhower Expressway.

    Miguel Rico of the 2400 block of South Christiana now faces a judge Tuesday morning. In the meantime families of the two women killed in the Saturday crash are demanding justice and ask that charges against Rico be upheld.

    Police said Rico was driving west on the eastbound lanes when he struck a 2001 blue Ford with three women inside.

    Briana Resto, 19, of North Lake, and Monica Hernandez, 20, of Maywood, were killed. A third woman, 20-year-old Brittney Mouzon, suffered non-life threatening injuries.

    Family members said funeral services have been set this week for Resto.

    Her funeral begins at 9 a.m. Thursday at Funeraria De La Torre Inc., at 2708 N. Western Ave., in Chicago. Her wake is from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. Wednesday at the same location.

    Resto's family set up an account in her name at TCF Bank. They are asking for donations to help pay for her funeral.
