QUEENSBURY, N.Y. (AP) - Jury deliberations will continue Monday in the trial of a New York man charged in the death of an 8-year-old California girl who was killed in a boating accident on an upstate lake last summer.

Prosecutors and Alexander West’s attorney wrapped up their cases Thursday in Warren County Court, where the 25-year-old Lake George man is on trial for charges that include manslaughter and criminally negligent homicide.

Authorities say West was impaired by drugs and alcohol when his motor boat collided with another boat on Lake George on the night of July 25. Charlotte McCue, of Carlsbad, California, was killed and her mother suffered serious injuries.

Police said West fled the scene of the crash. He and his three passengers didn’t report the accident.

Deliberations began Friday morning.
