ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- A wrongful death lawsuit stemming from a deadly officer-involved shooting in Albuquerque will now be split into two trials.


The family of Mary Hawkes is suing former Albuquerque Police Department officer Jeremy Dear and the City of Albuquerque. On Thursday, Judge Nan Nash decided both dear and the city will be tried separately.

Dear shot and killed Hawkes, a suspected car thief, following a foot chase in 2014. He's supposed to go to trial next March. The city will be tried next summer
