A prosecution source told PEOPLE, at the time, that Bruns was arraigned on charges of manslaughter, criminally negligent homicide and assault stemming from the March 5 crash that killed Abigail and 1-year-old Joshua Lew.
Bruns’ lawyer entered a not guilty plea on her behalf.
Previously, NYPD sources told PEOPLE that Bruns claimed she experienced a seizure at the time of the crash. The sources allege that after running the red light, Bruns allegedly continued down the street until crashing into some parked cars. Lew’s stroller was dragged halfway down the street with the boy in it, according to the sources.
