A Denver judge says there is enough evidence to proceed with a case against the man accused of running down a family of four, killing three people.

Thirty-six-year-old Lawrence Trujillo appeared in court Tuesday for a preliminary hearing to determine whether he'll stand trial on multiple charges.

The judge heard testimony from the lead investigator, who said Trujillo admitted to drinking and driving November tenth.

The investigator says Trujillo also acknowledged he hit "something" at a downtown Denver intersection, but wasn't sure what.

Police now say they have four videotapes of Trujillo's suspect vehicle running a red light and speeding down a street just before the collision.

He was arrested a few hours later with a blood-alcohol level of point-156.

The detective says Trujillo told police he started drinking between noon and two p.m. the day of the accident.

Thirty-nine-year-old Rebecca Bingham, her four-year-old daughter, Macie, and two-year-old son, Garrison, were killed.

Forty-one-year-old Frank Bingham survived.

Trujillo is due back in court January 30th.
