Man Arraigned in Pitcher Adenhart's Death

By  | 

SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) - A defense attorney has entered pleas of
not guilty on behalf of a Southern California man charged with killing Los Angeles Angels pitcher Nick Adenhart and two others in a drunken driving crash.

Defendant Andrew Thomas Gallo watched Monday as attorney Randall
Longwith entered the pleas in Orange County Superior Court.

The 22-year-old Gallo is charged with three counts of murder and other felonies in the April 9 crash.

Police have said Gallo had nearly triple the legal blood-alcohol level when his minivan ran a red light and crashed into a car carrying Adenhart and three others.

Adenhart died hours after he pitched six scoreless innings in his season debut.

Two others also were killed and a third was critically injured.
