BALLSTON SPA -
Marcus Young avoids the camera during a break in testimony at the Saratoga County Courthouse Thursday afternoon.
The 26-year-old Young could go to prison for up to 15 years if the jury finds him guilty of manslaughter in the death of Glenn Smith of West Charlton.
Young was driving west on Route 67, not far from Jockey Street, when police say he crossed over the double yellow line and struck and killed Smith.
The Assistant District Attorney spent most of the day questioning Trooper Dennis Rounds, the officer who arrested Young on the night of January 20th, 2013.
Rounds told the jury that Young appeared to be "on the nod," the term associated with someone under the influence of narcotics who is dozing off.
As prosecutors tried to establish that Young was impaired by drugs, the trooper testified that Young had "very droopy eyelids, watery, bloodshot eyes, and an aura of indifference."
