ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A former Albuquerque police sergeant is going on trial on charges stemming from an off-duty accident that killed a 21-year-old woman.

Ashley Browder was killed Feb. 10, 2013 when a vehicle driven by her 19-year-old sister collided with a police SUV driven by Adam Casaus, who since has been fired from the Police Department.

Charges of homicide and reckless driving accuse Casaus of speeding and running through a red light, broadsiding the Browder sisters’ vehicle.

The Albuquerque Journal (https://bit.ly/1rgaatI ) reports that jury selection begins Monday.

The Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Office said Casaus drove through a red light at about 65 mph with his emergency lights on but without his siren activated.

Casaus’ shift was over but he told investigators that he was looking for a possible drunken driver.
