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 delayed again.

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 March 5 and the defense requested a continuance. The motion was unopposed by the state.

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.

Court documents indicate that the defense requested the delay to negotiate a possible resolution in the case. A hearing on those negotiations is scheduled for April 2.
