HOPKINTON, N.H. — The family of a Hopkinton police officer who died last year after being struck by a drunken driver will receive more than $1 million as part of a pre-lawsuit settlement, with $800,000 coming from Chen Yang Li, the restaurant that served alcohol to the driver on the night Sean Powers was killed.

The remaining settlement will come from the driver, Jeffrey Dennis of Henniker, and his family. Dennis, now 23, is serving a four-year sentence after pleading guilty last year to one felony count of negligent homicide and one count of conduct after an accident.
