DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) — A Dayton woman has been indicted in connection to a hit-and-run that took the life of a pedestrian in January.
Tajia Moore, 42, of Dayton, was indicted Feb. 9 by the Montgomery County Grand Jury for one count of Failure to Stop After an Accident, according to a release from Prosecuting Attorney Mat Heck, Jr.
On Sunday, Jan. 22, deputies were dispatched to an area in the 3500 block of Hillcrest Avenue on a report of a deceased man on the side of roadway, partially covered in snow. The deceased man was identified as 60‐year‐old Ray Kennedy of Dayton.
