    Police say Anderson was driving 94 miles an hour while returning from a mutual aid call in West Haven and didn't have his emergency lights or siren on when the teens' car turned in front of him on Route 1 in Orange on June 13.

    Two 19-year-olds from Orange, David Servin and Ashlie Krakowski, died in the crash, which was caught on video by a camera in another officer's cruiser.

    Milford officials fired Anderson in December.

    Anderson and his lawyer have declined to comment on the charges.
