LACONIA, N.H. (AP) - The lawyer for a woman accused of crashing into two teenage girls at a crosswalk in Laconia, N.H., killing one of them, is asking for her trial to be postponed.

Amy Lafond is facing manslaughter and two alternate counts of negligent homicide in the crash on April 19, 2013. Prosecutors said the 52-year-old Lafond was speeding and under the influence of prescription drugs. Killed was 14-year-old Lilyanna Johnson. Her friend, 14-year-old Alyssa Miner, was seriously injured.

The Citizen reports (https://bit.ly/1epwL40) jury selection is scheduled for May 5. Defense attorney Mark Sisti said in a motion last week he just received evidence from the state regarding three witnesses and needed time to review it.

Belknap County Attorney Melissa Guldbrandsen submitted a list of 67 prospective witnesses she may call to testify.
