Woman Arraigned In May 11 Hit-And-Run Death
A 22-year-old woman has been arraigned, after authorities say her driving drunk caused the death of a WMU student last month.
Morgan Rowley was arraigned in Kalamazoo County Court Thursday, on charges of operating with intoxicated causing death, and failure to stop at an accident. Investigators say that Rowley’s blood alcohol level was .21, more than twice the legal limit, when she was arrested.
The victim, 21-year-old Nicholas Heil, was jogging on KL Avenue in Oshtemo Township the night of May 11, when he was struck by a vehicle and killed.
Morgan Rowley was released on bond, and if convicted, she could face up to 30 years in prison.
