LIMESTONE COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

The prosecution continued presenting their case in the second day of trial for a state trooper charged with killing two people in an April 2011 crash.

Trooper James Heath Moss is charged with two counts of criminally negligent homicide. He was responding to an accident when the crash happened on Lucas Ferry Road.

Prosecutors said Moss was driving more than 100 miles per hour before the crash. At the moment of impact, he was doing 51. The car of Sarah and Lee Gossett ended up in a field and caught fire.

Tuesday, a state police investigator described extracting the couple's bodies from the car, and how they were completely burned. He also told the jury how they determine the speed in crash investigations.

The prosecution will continue their case Wednesday morning.
