A suspect in a hit and run killing is off home confinement, but charges against her are headed to a Kanawha County grand jury. Lynsey Taylor, 22, is charged with leaving the scene of an accident causing death.
She allegedly hit Dennis James, 47, as he tried to cross Elk River Road in northern Kanawha County last month. Taylor waived her right to a preliminary hearing today. That clears the way for criminal charges against her to be presented to the grand jury.
A home confinement requirement that was part of her 150,000 dollar bond was dropped. The victim's family left the courthouse angry-- saying they were not happy with the decisions that could put Taylor back on the road again.
