AMENIA, N.Y. (AP) — Police say they’ve charged a Connecticut man in the hit-and-run death of a 36-year-old mother of two who was struck while getting into her vehicle after attending an in-home merchandise party in eastern New York.
The Dutchess County Sheriff’s Office says Wednesday that 57-year-old Randy Miles of Kent, Connecticut, turned himself in to detectives on Tuesday, a day after investigators tracked him down. His vehicle was found Saturday.
Miles was charged with leaving the scene of an accident.
Deputies say Miles hit Concetta Eastman of Copake in Columbia County last Thursday as she was leaving a product-selling party held at a home in the town of Amenia, on the Connecticut border. She later died at Sharon Hospital in Connecticut.
Miles is being held in the county jail. Police didn’t know if he has a lawyer.
