MARIETTA, Ga. (AP) - A Georgia judge has denied bond for a Texas woman accused of killing a pedestrian in a hit-and-run collision in the Atlanta suburbs, then carjacking two drivers as she fled 25 miles into the heart of Atlanta.

Kristie Renee Nesby appeared Thursday in Cobb County Magistrate Court. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports (https://on-ajc.com/1Ta0Ngd ) a judge ordered her to remain jailed until a hearing May 31.

Nesby is charged with murder and other crimes in a Wednesday roadway spree. Cobb County police officer Alicia Chilton says it began when Nesby robbed a dry cleaning business and escalated when she drove into a 75-year-old pedestrian who later died.

Jail records list Nesby’s address as Fresno, Texas, near Houston. It wasn’t clear whether she has an attorney who could be reached for comment.
