(Murray-AP) -- A jury will continue deliberating today in the case of a former Salt Lake County deputy accused of rushing to a call without her lights on and slamming into another car.
The June 2002 accident killed 19-year-old Mallory Hilton.
Officer Carla Redding is charged with negligent homicide, negligent collision, and speeding, all misdemeanors.
Prosecutors say the accident was the result of excessive speed and Redding's failure to use flashing lights and sirens. Redding testified at her own trial that she regrets rushing to the scene without those signals, but says it was not a crime.
If she's convicted, Redding would lose her current job as a Murray police officer and could face 21 months in jail and a fine of more than 42-hundred dollars.
