A Massachusetts state trooper pleaded not guilty to drunken driving and other charges connected to a fatal car crash.
John Basler of Kingston was released on personal recognizance at his arraignment Thursday in Plymouth District Court.
Plymouth police say the Basler, 25, had a blood-alcohol level more than twice the legal limit to drive when he was involved in the crash in the early morning hours of Sept. 22.
The other driver, 64-your-year-old Susan Macchi, and her daughter, 23-year-old Juliet Macchi, were killed when returning home from a Red Sox game.
Basler was off duty and was coming from a party. He was also injured and used a cane in court Thursday. His lawyer said his client's thoughts were with the Macchi family.
Basler has been placed on unpaid leave.
