ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - The trial of a former Albuquerque police sergeant facing charges stemming from an off-duty accident that killed a 21-year-old woman is coming to a close

Lawyers gave closing arguments Monday in the trial of former Albuquerque police Sgt. Adam Casaus.

The Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Office says Casaus ran through a red light with his emergency lights on but without his siren activated when he struck a vehicle killing Ashley Browder in 2013. The vehicle was driver by Browder’s 19-year-old sister.

Casaus is facing homicide by vehicle and reckless driving charges. He has pleaded not guilty.

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