Documents show that a special prosecutor in an Albuquerque police shooting case sought delay in the case so she could attend a wedding in China


ALBUQUERQUE, New Mexico — A New Mexico judge has fined a special prosecutor in a case involving two former Albuquerque officers charged with second-degree murder because she wants to delay the trial to attend a wedding.

KOAT-TV in Albuquerque reports ( District Judge Alisa Hadfield slapped Special Prosecutor Randi McGinn with a $500 fine after she requested the delay for a wedding in China.

The trial for now-former Officer Dominique Perez and retired detective Keith Sandy was set for August.

Documents obtained by KOAT-TV showed Hadfield believed the wedding was not a good reason to delay the case and issued the fine.

Sandy and Perez are accused of shooting and killing James Boyd during a standoff in 2014.

Authorities say Boyd was homeless and suffered from mental illness.
