Dead woman's family to receive $3 million from state

SANTA FE Ė State government agreed to a $3 million settlement payment to the family of a woman shot and killed by a State Police officer in Santa Fe more than three years ago to avoid a wrongful death suit, according to documents obtained by the Journal Friday.

State Police Officer Oliver Wilson shot and killed 39-year-old Jeanette Anaya around 1 a.m. Nov. 7, 2013, after Wilson tried to pull her over for what the officer contended was a questionable turn onto St. Francis Drive, although his dash-cam camera didnít show any obviously erratic driving when it was made public.

Anaya, who was wanted on a minor warrant for concealing identity, didnít stop and led Wilson on a chase through city streets, reaching 87 mph at one point. After Wilson used a bumping maneuver to get Anaya to stop on Camino Carlos Rey near Herb Martinez Park Wilson, she backed up and her car struck Wilsonís patrol car, the dash-cam video showed.

Wilson, who was already out of the car at that time, began firing shots shortly after the collision, but it was unclear if Anayaís car was moving forward or backward as the shots rang out. One of the 16 shots hit Anaya in the back of the head while another hit her in the back.
