Hearing for driver accused of killing Pueblo man
A hearing began on Monday to determine whether to charge a New Mexico man for the drunk-driving death of William Tenorio of San Felipe Pueblo.

Tenorio, 46, was killed on November 26, 2008, after he was struck by a car that was allegedly driven by Carlos Fierro, an attorney. The accident occurred outside a bar in Santa Fe where Fierro had reportedly been drinking.

Fierro was extremely intoxicated, a nurse testified. But he was able to send an e-mail to a friend, a television reporter who testified that Fierro admitted he struck Tenorio, whom he described as "a drunk guy."

Fierro faces charges of vehicular homicide and causing an accident involving death. He has worked for members of Congress and has worked on tribal, state and federal issues, The Santa Fe New Mexican reported.
