The woman accused in the dragging death of tow truck driver Allen Rose will stand trial. Detra Farries was in court Monday morning as her preliminary hearing wrapped up; Monday was the completion of that, beginning on May 13th.
Farries will be standing trial on charges related to causing an accident resulting in death and leaving the scene of an accident.
Monday the court heard from two witnesses from the defense; the prosecution also recalled a witness to the stand.
Wrapping up, the defense said Rose didn't follow procedure in the towing and caused his own death. As for the prosecution, they maintain that there was an accident, Farries was involved, and Rose died; they say that's enough to send the case to trial.
The judge agreed with the prosecution, that there was sufficient evidence for trial. Farries' arraignment has been set for June 22nd at 8:30 a.m.
There will be more on Monday's proceedings Monday evening on News First 5, and throughout the day on www.NewsFirst5.com.
