LAS VEGAS, Nev. (FOX5) – The case of a Las Vegas man charged with killing a pair of Nevada State Troopers in a DUI crash last year has been continued until March.
Jemarcus Williams is facing multiple felony charges, including two counts of DUI resulting in death, after a crash killed two NSP troopers on November 30, 2023. Williams appeared in Clark County Justice Court on January 30 and a preliminary hearing was set for March 5 at the request of counsel.
Sergeant Michael Abbate, badge 304, and Trooper Alberto Felix, badge 502, were killed in the line of duty on I-15. A Metro Impaired Driving Report stated that the troopers were investigating a black Jeep parked by the I-15 offramp at the D Street exit shortly before 3:30 a.m.
While the officers were investigating, they were struck by a Chevy HHR that fled the scene. LVMPD conducted a grid search and located Williams later Thursday morning. He was arrested for DUI and reckless driving after a barricade situation at an apartment complex near Monroe Avenue and J Street.
