WAXAHACHIE (AP) — A man accused of driving drunk when his vehicle slammed into a police cruiser has been convicted of intoxication manslaughter in the death of a Waxahachie officer.

Twenty-four-year-old Dyln Richards of Venus was convicted Thursday. It took an Ellis County jury 16 minutes to return with the verdict. The sentencing phase of Dyln Richards’ trial was set for Friday.

Officer Josh Williams was responding to a call when he was killed in the July 2012 collision.

Police have said Richards had a blood alcohol level over the legal limit and was driving without lights at the time.

Williams was a 17-year veteran of the force. Friends said he had a positive energy and passion for the job.

Waxahachie is located about 30 miles south of Dallas.
