(Murray-AP) -- A Murray city police officer has pleaded innocent to homicide charges connected to a crash that killed a 19-yar-old woman last year.

Officer Carla Redding's case is being handled by the Weber County District Attorney's Office.

Salt Lake County prosecutors declined to press charges. District Attorney David Yocom also has the duty of defending Redding in a civil lawsuit, so he asked Weber County officials to take a look at the matter.

Police reports say Redding, who was a Salt Lake County deputy at the time, was hurrying to assist another officer when her squad car slammed into a vehicle drive by Malarie Hilton. Redding reportedly did NOT turn on her emergency lights or sirens. She was slightly injured in the crash.

The charge she faces is negligent homicide, a misdemeanor.
