Man accused in 2012 fatal DWI to be tried for murder

An accused drunken driver will be tried for murder for the first time in 14 years, according to officials.



Police say Michael Grasing, of Babylon, had a blood alcohol level almost four times the legal limit when he hit a car and killed 18-year-old Brittney Walsh. 



Prosecutors say Grasing was driving 100 mph on Montauk Highway two years ago, when he killed the Lindenhurst High School graduate.
