Woman convicted of murdering a CHP officer seeks new trial
September 9, 2011
Kaylee Weisenberg was scheduled to be sentenced in a San Luis Obispo Superior Courtroom Thursday morning when her attorney motioned for a new trial.
Judge John Trice scheduled a hearing on the motion for a new trial for Dec. 15.
A jury convicted Weisenberg, 23, of second-degree murder and gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated in August.
Weisenberg crashed into and killed CHP Officer Bret Oswald while driving on South River Road on June 27, 2010. The jury concluded that Weisenberg was under the influence of methamphetamine when she crossed a double yellow line and hit Oswald, who was attending to a disabled vehicle.
Weisenberg hired San Diego attorney Angelyn Gates to review transcripts of the trial.
