LOWVILLE — A trial is slated to begin in late March in the case of a Watertown woman accused of causing a fatal motor vehicle crash involving Lewis County’s senior planner.

Acting Lewis County Judge Donald E. Todd today scheduled a possible trial date of March 31 in the case of Deborah Aguirre-Kerwin, with a hearing set for Feb. 28 to discuss any pretrial legal issues.

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 April 13 on Route 12 in the town of Harrisburg, causing Mrs. Beyer’s death.

A Huntley hearing, designed to determine whether statements made to police were given voluntarily, was held today.
