Woman faces trial in DIA taxi crash that killed 2
DENVER – A Colorado woman facing vehicular homicide charges in the deaths of two Connecticut women will go on trial next week.
Sandra Jacobson is accused of causing an accident in February 2009 that killed 71-year-old Kate McClelland and 54-year-old Kathy Krasniewicz. They were librarians headed to the Denver airport in a taxi after a convention.
Attorneys for both sides told a judge Thursday that they’re ready for the trial. A jury is expected to be seated Monday morning, with opening statements shortly after.
Police officers say Jacobson’s blood-alcohol level was more than twice the legal limit.
