Internet personality La Barrie died in a car crash on his 25th birthday on 10 May, during which Silva was allegedly driving.

According to legal documents seen by TMZ , the Los Angeles County District Attorney says that Silva, who appeared on the 10th season of reality series Ink Master , is facing charges of second-degree murder after “unlawfully, and with malice aforethought” killing La Barrie. A statement from the DA reads: “A 26-year-old man has been charged with killing the passenger in his McLaren sports car after crashing into a tree in Valley Village earlier this month.”

La Barrie was declared dead at the scene, while Silva reportedly suffered a hip fracture.

Speaking about her son’s death, La Barrie’s mother Lissa Burton wrote: “My heart breaks right now. The accident killed him instantly.

“No words can describe the sadness I feel in losing a child. It just feels so unreal and I’m overwhelmed with grief. I love you so much Corey and will miss you so so much. It’s just so unfair.”

A GoFundMe set up to support the family with funeral costs has raised more than £167,000 ($205,000).
