MILWAUKEE (AP) — A Milwaukee firefighter has pleaded not guilty to charges stemming from a crash that killed two men after the Brewers opener.

Thirty-one-year-old Joshua Larson waived his right to a preliminary hearing Tuesday and was bound over for trial.

Prosecutors allege Larson was driving drunk and speeding 70 mph in West Allis when he slammed his pickup into two vehicles April 4. The crash killed the driver of a minivan, which was being rented out as an Uber ride-share car, and his passenger.

Defense attorney Julius Kim says he just received the police reports and asks people to keep an open mind.

Larson is on paid leave with the fire department. The Journal Sentinel reports he’s due back in court June 17 when a judge will set a trial date.
