YUMA, Ariz. -- The Yuma County Sheriff's Office says a 19-year-old woman who was found dead last month was killed by severe alcohol poisoning.

A toxicology report released by the sheriff's office says Jazmin Serrano had a blood alcohol concentration of 0.585 percent when she died. That's more than seven times the legal driving limit in Arizona.

Deputies and emergency personnel were dispatched to Yavapai Lane on Oct. 27 after receiving a call that a person inside a parked vehicle was unconscious. Authorities later determined that Serrano was dead.

The case remains under investigation.

The Yuma Sun reports that Serrano's family has planned a benefit car wash this weekend to raise funds to cover funeral costs.
