HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) — A suspected drunk driver accused of killing a District 7 deputy police officer is due to be tried Monday.

Deputy Constable Jennifer Chavis died on the job while working to stop a suspected drunk driver. On Saturday, Chavis attempted to stop the driver and waited in a fully marked squad car on the 7200 block side of the South Sam Houston Parkway in Fondren, according to the sheriff’s office.

“He hit a wall and is driving now. Still, it will be a white work truck,” a 911 dispatcher was heard saying over rangecast audio.

The suspected drunk driver, identified as 36-year-old Adolfo Serrano, was driving a Ford F-550 when, according to deputies, it was not going in a single lane and struck Chavis in the rear.

Chavis’ squad car caught fire. A witness who took video of the MP’s car on fire said she heard a big bang before seeing black smoke.

The 32-year-old was a member of parliament in District 7 for a year and a half.

She leaves behind a husband, a 4-year-old son and an 11-year-old nephew, whom she also raised.
