ALBUQUERQUE, New Mexico — A New Mexico judge has fined a special prosecutor in a case involving two former Albuquerque officers charged with second-degree murder because she wants to delay the trial to attend a wedding.
KOAT-TV in Albuquerque reports (http://goo.gl/XNx0wa) District Judge Alisa Hadfield slapped Special Prosecutor Randi McGinn with a $500 fine after she requested the delay for a wedding in China.
The trial for now-former Officer Dominique Perez and retired detective Keith Sandy was set for August.
Documents obtained by KOAT-TV showed Hadfield believed the wedding was not a good reason to delay the case and issued the fine.
Sandy and Perez are accused of shooting and killing James Boyd during a standoff in 2014.
Authorities say Boyd was homeless and suffered from mental illness.
