ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – The family of a young woman killed by an off-duty police sergeant during a crash is asking a judge to make the Albuquerque Police Department hand over more evidence in their lawsuit against the city.

In a newly filed motion, the family of Ashley and Lindsey Browder want the department to hand over the work computer and hard drive of APD’s former records custodian, Reynaldo Chavez.

Attorneys say Chavez’s computer has data from the work issued-cell phone Adam Casaus was using the night of the crash.

Casaus sped through a red light on Paseo in 2013, hitting the two sisters.

Ashley was killed.

APD destroyed his cell phone but the family wants to know if he was texting or talking on the phone at the time of the crash.
