EVANSVILLE, Ind. (AP) - A southwestern Indiana woman has been charged in a hit-and-run death after police matched a section of bumper found at the accident scene to her car.

Forty-six-year-old Charlote Ann Zell of Mount Vernon faces one count of leaving the scene of an accident resulting in death.

She’s charged in the June death of 60-year-old John Johnson, who died after being struck by a car as his wife pushed his wheelchair across an Evansville road.

The Evansville Courier & Press reports that police matched a broken bumper section to a missing section of bumper on Zell’s car.

A judge entered a not guilty plea on Zell’s behalf during a Monday hearing.



She’s being held on $100,000 bond. Online court records don’t list an attorney who could speak on Zell’s behalf.
