This week in Santa Ana, it is reported that the judge presiding over the case of a man that is accused of killing Los Angeles Angels pitcher Nick Adenhart has delayed the trial. The man, 23 year old Andrew Gallo, has been charged with second-degree murder for killing Adenhart and two other individuals during a DUI accident.
Originally, the trial was expected to start on Monday in Orange County. Now, it has been pushed back to September. The change was made after Gallo's attorney said that she needed more time to repare an expert witness for the defense.
In April 2009, Gallo struck a car at the Fullerton intersection. Inside of the car were Adenhart and some of his friends who were out after a recent MLB game. Police say that at the time of the accident, Gallo's blood alcohol concentration was three times the legal limit in the state of California. Gallo pled "not guilty" to three counts of second-degree murder.
