COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) –  A former Columbus police officer and human resources director for Columbus Mental Health was scheduled to be in court Monday, but his trial had been postponed until a later date.

Gregory Burns is charged with homicide by vehicle, insurance fraud and false report of a crime in the death of former marine James Collins.

The 24-year-old was hit by a car in June 2009.

The driver fled the scene and left behind a piece of his SUV's headlight; that is how investigators placed 38-year-old Burns at the scene.
