LAS VEGAS (KSNV -- Jvon Williams, the man accused of driving drunk and killing a local 19-year-old who wanted to become a police officer, was in court this morning.

The Clark County district attorney’s office said it is waiting on a blood sample for Williams and will need more time to prove its case. An amended criminal complaint was presented during the hearing.

Williams will remain in jail on $500,000 bond. His next court appearance is set for 8:30 a.m. Sept. 4.

The accident occurred around 7 p.m. Aug. 1 at the intersection of Sahara and Van Patten. Police say Angel Velasquez was headed east down Sahara on his motorcycle. Police say Williams causing the teenager to tip over and slide into his Honda after he turned in front of him and cut him off.

Velasquez was pronounced dead at the hospital.

Velasquez became an Explorer when he was 16, with a goal of eventually joining the force. He was studying criminal justice at College of Southern Nevada, helped out at many police events and went on two ride-alongs each week to prepare for his future on the force.

Marivel Jiminez, Velasquez’s mother, saw the person suspected of her son’s death for the first time.

“I just turned once to look at him, and it went through my mind that I just want justice,” she said. “I just hope he gets what he needs to get.”

Jiminez shared what she and the family are leaning on to keep them going.

“I think about him all good memories, everything he achieved,” she said. “Everything he accomplished. I remembered everything about him, everything good.”

PAHOA, HAWAII - OCTOBER 26:  In this handout provided by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), A portion of the front of the June 27th lava flow burns through thick vegetation and a fence on October 26, 2014 in Pahoa, Hawaii. Scientists of the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory conducted ground and air observations of the lava flow from the Kilauea Volcano and determined that it was 510 meters (560 yards) upslope from Pa-hoa Village Road and the flow width was about 50 meters (55 yards) at the leading edge. Molten rock from the flow is inching its way towards homes in the town of Pahoa on Hawaii's Big Island where close to a thousand people live.  (Photo by USGS via Getty Images) (Handout, 2014 USGS)
