Courts > Charges stem from crash in November, hearing set for Monday

By Tris DeRoma

Earlier this month, two judges selected to preside over the case of a Los Alamos man arrested on two counts of homicide by vehicle were recused.
Robin Wood, 36, is accused of driving a car while impaired and causing a deadly accident. The accident occurred on N.M. 30 in late November of last year.
The crash took the life of Elizabeth Quintana, who was driving to her job in the early morning hours at the bakery of Smith’s Marketplace in Los Alamos, according to deputies with the Santa Fe Sheriff’s Department.
Also injured in the crash was Wood’s passenger, a 40-year-old woman, Mary C. Gaelgens. Wood was driving to a residence in Española when the crash occurred.
In May, Santa Fe District Court Judge Mary Marlowe Sommer recused herself from the case, explaining that she could not show impartiality to Wood after she became familiar with his ongoing struggles with drug addiction through past court cases.
