MURFREESBORO, Tenn. - The former Rutherford County sheriff's deputy involved in a crash that claimed the life of an 11-year-old girl will go on trial in the fall.

A judge on Monday set Ron Killings' trial date for October 13.

He is accused of disposing of two liquor bottles after hitting and killing Lakeisha White on Bradyville Pike in July 2008.

Killings resigned from the sheriff's office in February after a grand jury indicted him on charges of reckless homicide, tampering with evidence and filing a false report.

White, of Hopkinsville, Kentucky, was visiting her grandmother in Murfreesboro when she was struck.

"I wish he'd just man up to what he did and get this over with so we can move on with our life and she can just rest," White's aunt Kim Coleman told News 2 Monday after the court proceedings.  "I'm ready for it to be over with so you know and I'm putting it in God's hand because he'll bring out the truth.  There's nothing I can do about it but just sit back and wait."

Killings has maintained the crash was an accident.
