MURFREESBORO, Tenn. - Ron Killings has been accused of hitting and killing 11-year-old Lakeisha White, and Friday a judge will decided whether testimony will be allowed at the former Rutherford County sheriff's detective trial next week.

At Killings pre-trial motions hearing Friday a judge could decide whether to allow testimony from witnesses claiming the former sheriff's detective did not give immediate aid.

Police charged Killings with reckless homicide in July 2008. Killings hit White with his patrol car as she crossed Bradyville Pike in Murfreesboro. 11-Year-Old Girl Hit, Killed By Sheriff's Deputy

Witnesses at the scene told police that Killings got rid of bottles of alcohol before he went to check on White. Those bottles have been excluded from the trial, but the testimony of the witnesses claiming Killings did not give immediate aid could be allowed to show that his behavior could have contributed to the 11-year-old's death.
