The Paso Robles woman convicted of hitting and killing a California Highway Patrol officer while high on methamphetamine has filed a motion for a new trial.

Kaylee Ann Weisenberg, 23, filed the motion through her attorney, Angelyn Gates of Del Mar, last week.

The District Attorney’s Office must respond to the motion by March 9, and a rebuttal from the defendant is due by March 23.

The hearing for the motion before Judge John Trice — as well as the sentencing if the motion is denied — is scheduled for April 5.

Weisenberg was convicted in August of murder and gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated. The charges resulted from a crash near Paso Robles on June 27, 2010, that killed CHP Officer Brett Oswald.

Weisenberg faces a sentence of 15 years to life in state prison.
