Accused killer battles cancer?

For the first time in more than a year, a woman accused of driving drunk and running over five people after a concert appears in court. This is the first pre-trial hearing Mary Dodgen has actually attended since the crash back in the summer of last year. She appeared before Judge Wilford Flowers in a wheelchair Thursday afternoon. This case has seen more than a year and a half of delays because of the defendant's condition. Dodgen is battling cancer.

The attorneys on the case told the judge they cannot set a trial date as they are uncertain whether Dodgen's cancer treatment and recovery will interfere with the court setting.
Dodgen is accused of driving drunk last year and running over five people who were trying to cross Highway 71 after a concert at the Backyard. Jeff Wilson, 32, later died from his injuries. Wilson's family attended Thursday's court hearing wearing buttons with Jeff's picture.

His family asked a representative from Mothers Against Drunk Driving to speak on their behalf about the status of the case. They are frustrated it is taking so long for justice to run its course.
The victim's family will have to wait even longer. No trial date was set. But a new hearing was set for late January.
