WINDER, Ga. (AP) — A Georgia woman has been arrested and charged in the death of a man who was struck and killed by a hit-and-run driver earlier this month.
The Athens Banner-Herald reported that the Barrow County Sheriff's Office said 42-year-old Sandy Michelle Wilson of Winder was arrested on Christmas eve and is charged with felony vehicular homicide, cruelty to animals and other traffic violations.
The sheriff's office said 66-year-old Marvin Barnes of Statham and his dog were struck and killed Dec. 3 when someone ran off a the road.
The sheriff's office offered a reward of $2,500 last week for Wilson's arrest. It was not known whether the reward offer played a role in her capture.
