Judge Sends Fatal Cruiser Crash Case Back To Jury

MILFORD, Conn. (AP) _ A jury is again deliberating the fate of a Milford police officer after a Superior Court judge tossed out a portion of an earlier verdict in the case.

The Connecticut Post reports  the jury on Tuesday morning acquitted Jason Anderson of manslaughter, but convicted him of misconduct with a motor vehicle and negligent homicide.

But Judge Denise Markle ruled the guilty verdicts conflicted with answers on the verdict forms, and sent the jury back into deliberations.
Prosecutors argue Anderson caused the 2009 crash that killed David Servin and Ashlie Krakowski because he was driving at 94 mph in Orange without his cruiser’s lights or sirens at the time of the accident.

The defense argued that Servin, who had an elevated blood-alcohol level, was at least partially at fault.
