SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Lawyers for a Utah repossession agent accused of forcing a woman off the road and killing her while trying to take back her car say they need more time to examine the evidence against him.

The Daily Herald in Provo reports (https://bit.ly/29fyreG ) 49-year-old Kenneth Drew’s attorney Loni DeLand asked a judge for another month before scheduling an evidence hearing in the case.

His next court appearance was set for Aug. 9.

Drew is facing a manslaughter charge in the May 17 death of Ashleigh Best, a mother of two had fallen behind on her title loan payments.

Prosecutors say she drove off when Drew arrived to take her car and he aggressively chased her until she hit a tree at 50 mph. Drew told police he followed her to keep an eye on the car.
