Plea set in fatal crash

The man accused of killing one woman and seriously injuring another when he plowed his truck into a bus stop pleaded not guilty Thursday in District Court.

Steven Murray, 44, told District Judge Michelle Leavitt that he understood the charges against him. He pleaded not guilty to multiple charges, including driving under the influence causing substantial bodily harm and vehicular homicide.

Murray is scheduled to go to trial Jan. 20.

Murray is accused of killing Patricia Hoff, 55, and seriously injuring Porche Hughes, 26, when he drove into a bus stop on Boulder Highway near Flamingo Road on July 7. Hughes had her left leg amputated below the knee and remains at a local hospital.

Authorities said Murray had prescription drugs in his system at the time of the crash.

Murray has four driving under the influence convictions out of Texas and a history of minor traffic violations in Las Vegas.

Under Nevada law, if Murray is convicted, he could spend 25 years to life in prison because he has prior driving under the influence convictions.
