COLUMBUS, GA (WXTX) – Former Columbus police officer and Columbus Mental Health human resources director will be in court Monday.

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