LOWVILLE Ahearing in the case of a Watertown woman accused of causing a fatal motor vehicle crash involving Lewis Countys senior planner has been set for early January.
Acting Lewis County Judge Donald E. Todd on Thursday set a Huntley hearing, designed to determine whether statements made to police were given voluntarily, for Jan. 9 in the case of Deborah Aguirre-Kerwin. He also complained that the defendant did not appear and said she must do so at next months hearing.
Ms. Aguirre-Kerwin, 40, of 1429 Gill St., Apt 446B, is charged with aggravated vehicular manslaughter, second-degree manslaughter, driving while ability impaired by drugs, seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, failure to keep right and driving left of pavement markings. She was accused of, while under the influence of drugs, driving into the path of an oncoming vehicle being driven by Renee J. Beyer, 39, on Route 12 in the town of Harrisburg, causing Mrs. Beyers death.
