The driver of a pickup truck that struck and killed an Alabama man waiting for a taxi in southeastern Connecticut last year has pleaded not guilty to manslaughter and drunken driving.
Fifty-four-year-old Juan Davila of Griswold was arraigned Thursday in Norwich Superior Court.
Police say Davila was driving home from the Mohegan Sun casino at about 2 a.m. on April 20, 2013, after having drinks with friends when his truck failed to negotiate a curve and struck the two men in a parking lot in Preston.
Twenty-eight-year-old Lakendrick Horn of York, Ala., died and 48-year-old Arnold Feaster of Ledyard was injured.
Davila remains free on $200,000 bail and is due back in court May 15.
Horn's family and Feaster are suing Davila, the Mohegan Tribe and others over the crash.
