A trial in the case of a Griswold woman charged with vehicle homicide is set to begin in less than three-months. 45-year-old Christine A. Riedemann was charged with Vehicular Homicide and Possession of Marijuana, following an investigation into an accident last June near Atlantic, that claimed the life of 44-year old Katrina L. Christensen, of Atlantic. According to court records, Riedemann has waived her right to a speedy trial and will appear before a jury August 23rd.

Reidemann was allegedly the driver of an SUV that went out of control the evening of June 4th, 2010, as the it was traveling west on Highland Road. The vehicle entered a ditch, hit a utility pole and overturned.

Two separate blood-alcohol tests each indicated Riedemann was above the legal limit to drive. She was also found to have allegedly been in possession of marijuana.
