State police arrest Washington County man in hit-and-run death

Saturday, Aug. 16, 2014, 8:39 a.m.
 

State police filed charges Saturday against a Washington County man who they say fled the scene after striking and killing a Scenery Hill pedestrian with his pickup.

Brittany M. Chapman, 29, was walking along the northbound lane of South Main Street in Ellsworth about 8:40 p.m. Friday when a vehicle traveling southbound hit her, the Washington County Coroner's Office said. The coroner's office ruled that Chapman died of blunt force trauma.

Robert Lee Myers Jr., 42, of Ellsworth was taken to Washington County Jail and denied bail, court records show.

Myers faces more than a dozen charges, including homicide by vehicle while under the influence.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Aug. 27.
