EDGEWATER, N.J. (AP) - A woman who prosecutors say was driving drunk when she allegedly struck a bicyclist in northern New Jersey last year has been indicted on a death by auto charge.

The indictment against 40-year-old Siobhan Stokley was handed up Monday by a Bergen County grand jury.

Prosecutors have said Stokley was driving in Edgewater last May when her vehicle struck the rear wheel of a bicycle driven by 61-year-old Tony Tyson of Jersey City. The collision caused Tyson to fall from his bicycle and strike his head against the paved roadway surface.

Tyson died from his injuries two days later.

Stokley faces up to 10 years in prison if convicted. A telephone number for her could not be located Monday, and it wasn’t known if he’s retained a lawyer.
