MARIETTA, Ga. (AP) - Police say the pedestrian killed in a hit-and-run crash - part of a road rampage that included two carjackings in metro Atlanta - is 71-year-old Luci James Yarborough Turner of Marietta, Georgia.

Marietta police released Yarborough’s identify Friday after notifying her relatives of the death.

Police say Kristie Renee Nesby of Fresno, Texas, drove onto a sidewalk and collided with Turner in Cobb County on Wednesday.

Police say Nesby first robbed a dry cleaning business and then drove into Turner. Police say Nesby then carjacked two drivers as she fled 25 miles into the heart of Atlanta.

Nesby is charged with murder and other crimes.

A judge on Thursday ordered Nesby to remain jailed until a hearing May 31. Jail records do not list an attorney for Nesby.
