Man indicted for death of Adenhart

May 28, 2009

SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) -- A grand jury has indicted the man accused of killing Los Angeles Angels pitcher and 2004 Williamsport High School graduate Nick Adenhart and two others when a minivan smashed into their car last month.

Orange County prosecutors say Andrew Gallo was indicted Wednesday on three counts of murder and three other felonies for the April 9 crash.

Gallo already faced similar charges, but prosecutors say the indictment will help expedite the case by skipping the preliminary hearing.

Police say Gallo had nearly triple the legal blood-alcohol level when his minivan ran a red light and crashed in Fullerton.

Adenhart died hours after he made his season debut by pitching six scoreless innings. Two others were also killed and a third was critically injured.
