ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - The grandmother of the young woman who was killed by a cop who a ran red light is speaking out.
"It would have been her 22nd birthday yesterday," said Vicki Serfoss.
Birthday balloons fly at the memorial site for Ashley Browder, killed at this intersection of Paseo and Eagle Ranch in a brutal crash February 10. The crash left her sister in a wheelchair.
While the Browder family mourns their loss, her grandmother wants to know why Casaus hasn't been fired from APD and why the internal affairs investigation has taken so long?
"Casaus' first call was to his wife, not to 911 to get the girls any help. That kind of shows us what kind of person he is," she said.
In the past, Chief Schultz has quickly fired officers indicted on a felony.
Six weeks after Casaus' indictment, he is still collecting pay from APD.
Multiple sources confirm he's also using his off-time to work at a local car dealership.
The city tells KRQE News 13 he doesn't have permission to be working anywhere else while collecting APD pay.
"The family would like to see Casaus fired and not be on paid vacation to send a message to all other police officers that you cannot do this and not be punished," she said.
The city would not tell KRQE News 13 a specific date when they'll decide what to do with Casaus' employment.
