Dena McKenzie has been charged with a second degree felony in the crash that killed Kevin Munson last week. Cops were tipped off when she was recognized in a surveillance video putting a damaged part of her car in the back seat. KTRH legal analyst Chris Tritico says this is not how a registered nurse is supposed to act.
“It’s hard to envision that she didn’t know she hit someone on a bike,” Tritico said. And being a nurse makes it even worse.”
Friends of Munson, like Diane Prince, can't understand why she ran.
“She could have stayed with him, whether it was her fault or not. You don’t just leave a person like a piece of trash in the street,” Diane Prince told our television partner, Local 2.
“This really hurts me to know that he was just left in the street,” Prince said.
Tritico says if he were McKenzie's attorney, he'd be looking to make a deal because a jury won't like the fact she ran.
“Running from the scene like that shows the guilt that a jury looks for,” Tritico explained. “It makes it a lot harder for you to win.”
McKenzie’s bond was set at 25 thousand dollars.
