STOCKTON-

Luis Alberto Sanchez Manzo appeared in front of a San Joaquin County court judge Tuesday for his arraignment. He entered no plea.

Investigators said Manzo plowed into 31-year-old Tony Randle Saturday as he was riding his beloved Yamaha motorcycle in Stockton.

"I feel it was an honest mistake, but in my heart, I cannot feel remorse for him," Tony's brother, Michael Randle, said.

Manzo is now charged with six felonies -- including murder, vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated, DUI and child abuse.

FOX40 saw Manzo's family speaking to the Randle family outside the courtroom. They apologized for his actions, saying Manzo is a father of four children and that the tragedy was an accident. They also claimed he wasn’t drunk, but court documents show Manzo was driving under the influence with a child in the car. The documents also state Manzo has a history of DUIs.

"To me it does not matter. The alcohol does not matter. He killed my brother," Randle said.

Randle, a business student at Delta College, leaves behind four grieving siblings, his parents and a 12-year-old daughter.

"They are here saying he did not mean it. He is sorry for what he has done. But I cannot feel it. Because they still have somebody who can call from jail, or prison, or wherever he is going to be. He can call them. They can say I love you again. I can't tell my brother 'I love you' again. That is what hurts me," Randle said.

Manzo's arraignment will continue on April 7. His bail is set for $2 million.

The Randle family is planning a Catholic funeral service for Tony. If you'd like to donate, you can do so by clicking here:https://www.gofundme.com/w9u4qr2s
