Milwaukee woman faces charges in fatal hit-and-run
MILWAUKEE – A woman from Milwaukee is the subject of a criminal complaint in a hit-and-run that killed a man on October 26 on Greenfield Avenue.
Carolyn Alcala had been drinking before getting in her car around 7:00 p.m. on Saturday, according to the complaint. As Alcala began driving home, she heard a bump to her car which caused her to stop. When she turned around, she saw a shoe in the road, panicked, and drove home without stopping.
The victim, Anthony Judd, was found near the intersection by a Milwaukee Police Officer. Judd was pronounced dead at the scene. After performing an autopsy, the Medical Examiner’s Office found that the cause of his death was blunt force trauma from the incident.
Alcala turned herself in at the 2nd District Police Department about 45 minutes after the accident. She said that she had been drinking and did not stop to check on Judd.
If convicted, Alcala could face up to $100,000 in fines and 25 years in prison.
