The trial of an engineering apprentice accused of causing his girlfriend's death in a car crash in Guilden Sutton has started.
It has been almost three years since 19-year-old Claudia Williams passed away on June 24, 2013.
She was killed when Richard Bromley's Vauxhall Corsa left School Lane in Guilden Sutton and crashed into a tree.
Bromley, of Daniell Way in Great Boughton, faces a charge of causing death by careless driving while under the influence of drink or drugs.
His trial opened at Warrington Crown Court on Monday (May 5).
The couple, who had been together for around one year before the crash, had spent the day house-hunting before meeting her family for dinner at the Old Trooper pub in Christleton.
The trial continues in Warrington on Tuesday.
