Man pleads guilty in deadly hit-and-run
Aug. 22, 2017
ALLENTOWN, Pa. (AP) — A Pennsylvania man has pleaded guilty in connection with a hit-and-run crash that killed a woman earlier this year.
Thirty-five-year-old Joshua Stockman, of South Whitehall Township, entered the plea Monday in Lehigh County Court.
Stockman's lawyer says he has apologized to the family of 32-year-old Ruby Marrero of Allentown.
Police say Marrero was walking to an Allentown corner store when she was hit in February. She died a week later.
The car that hit her was found abandoned a half-block away. Stockman later turned himself in.
Sentencing is scheduled for September.
