DOUGLAS COUNTY – The Douglas County District Attorney is appealing a judge’s decision to throw out felony charges against a man accused of killing a state trooper.
Noe Gamez-Ruiz was charged with negligent homicide in the death of Trooper Cody Donahue.
Donahue was struck and killed on I-25 by a truck Ruiz was driving.
Two attempts to try Gamez-Ruiz ended in mistrials.
Last week, the judge dismissed the felony charge and said prosecutors made too many mistakes in dealing with evidence.
