Trial date set for man charged in Adenhart killing

SANTA ANA, Calif. — A Nov. 9 trial date has been scheduled for a man charged in the drunk-driving crash that killed Los Angeles Angels pitcher Nick Adenhart and two others.

Orange County Superior Court Judge Richard Toohey on Friday also scheduled a Sept. 11 pretrial hearing for Andrew Thomas Gallo.

Gallo is charged with three counts of second-degree murder, three other felonies and one misdemeanor. He is accused of driving his minivan while intoxicated through a red light in Fullerton on April 9 and broadsiding a Mitsubishi Eclipse.

Killed along with Adenhart were driver Courtney Stewart and Henry Pearson. Another passenger, Jon Wilhite, was seriously injured.

Gallo could be sentenced to more than 54 years in prison if convicted of all charges.
