GREENWICH, Conn. — The case against a Greenwich teen charged with a fatal hit-and-run has proceeded slowly for nearly a year, according to Greenwich Time.
Andrew Schmidt, 18, was arrested last May in connection with the April 17, 2016 hit-and-run that killed 43-year-old Edward Setterberg, according to police. The trial against Schmidt, who is being tried as an adult, is still in its discovery phase, according to Greenwich Time.
In Schmidt's most recent court appearance, the judge in the case said that the case was proceeding slowly, and told both the defense and prosecutors that he wanted it to move quicker, according to Greenwich Time. Prosecutors said they would turn over all police materials to the defense, Greenwich Time reported.
Setterberg was a native of Greenwich who ran a home remodeling business. He was walking near the intersection of Hillside Road and East Putnam Avenue in Greenwich when he was struck by a car. His body was found lying in the road, according to police. Following an investigation, police arrested Schmidt, who they said had been driving the Mercedes-Benz ML350 that killed Setterberg.
Schmidt was charged with evading responsibility following involvement in an accident that results in a fatality, police said. The charge carries a possible prison term of up to 10 years in prison.
