RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR) A Richmond woman receives official hit and run charges after allegedly hitting and killing a man with her car outside a Shockoe Bottom club on April 21.

A grand jury indicted 36-year-old Jennifer Slemp this morning in connection with the accident that killed 25-year-old David Boyd and injured another man.

Police say Slemp's Honda was traveling south on 14th Street when a fight spilled out onto the road in front of her.

Court documents indicated Slemp told police she was unaware she hit anyone. That's why she kept driving.
