Police have added an additional charge of homicide to the charges already filed against a McKeesport woman for allegedly running down an elderly man with her car in July.
Police alleged in court documents that on July 26 Jakiia Williams, 33, was attempting to strike someone with her Chevy Impala that she just had an argument with outside the Harrison Village housing complex.
At the time he was struck the man was walking on a sidewalk.
Instead of striking that person, Williams admitted to police that she struck a 72-year-old man, according to a criminal complaint.
County police announced Wednesday that the man, identified as Leslie Robertson, died on March 15.
An autopsy attributed his death to injuries he sustained as a result of being struck by the car.
Williams faces an April 5 preliminary hearing on the homicide charge. Her trial on the original charges that was scheduled for June 10 has been postponed.
