Norberto Garcia-Gonzales is the man suspected of running over and killing a Weld County Deputy last weekend.
This morning, he appeared in court, where he’s accused of drinking and driving.
The hit-and-run happened on AA Street near County Road 37.
The suspect then took off, running into nearby corn fields to hide from responding officers.
Deputy Alexis Hein-Nutz was killed while riding her motorcycle on her way to work.
The 23-year-old was a week away from celebrating her next birthday.
A procession is happening Saturday morning to honor her.
It’s starting at the Weld County Jail, where she worked, off O Street in Greeley. It’s going to run several miles east and will end at Foundations Church.
Her service will be held there at 10 a.m.
