A retired NYPD cop pleaded not guilty of killing a pedestrian when driving while intoxicated

Last May, 34 year old Marino Nunez, a father of two,  died after being struck by 44 year old Jorge Heraiz, a retired NYPD cop who was drunk driving. That night Hernaiz drank a bottle of vodka and a bottle of Colt 45 before driving. He is accused of fatally striking Nunez with his car as he was exiting the Henry Hudson Parkway onto W. 254th Street and Broadway in Riverdale, Bronx, NYC.
