After failed attempts to reach a plea deal, the trial of Rousso on a felony charge of aggravated DUI resulting in death is scheduled to begin Tuesday in Lake County circuit court.

Rousso and her attorney, Douglas Zeit, have opted for a bench trial before Judge James Booras.

Zeit said the trial will be short because much of the information in the case is not contested. Rousso is free on $500,000 bond.
