Walsh, who had graduated from high school just two days before the crash, was killed on her way home from work when, police said, her car was rear-ended by Michael Grasing, 31 of Babylon.

Grasing, whose blood alcohol level registered at 0.30 percent, according to police, pleaded not guilty to driving while intoxicated, a misdemeanor. The legal limit is 0.08 percent.
