A York Regional Police officer who killed a pedestrian while speeding on a Toronto street has been found guilty of dangerous driving causing death after standing trial in front of a jury for a third time.
Det.-Const. Remo Romano was on duty and driving an undercover pickup truck as part of a surveillance team when he hit Natasha Carla Abogado as she crossed St. Clair Ave. E. at around 8 p.m. on Feb. 12, 2014.
Court was told Romano was travelling 115 kilometres per hour in a 60-km zone, trying to catch up to and assist other members of his team.
The latest Superior Court jury deliberated for about eight hours before delivering the guilty verdict Wednesday afternoon.
It was the third time the case was argued in front of a jury, each with different outcomes.
