March 31, 2018

PUEBLO, Colo. (AP) — A woman accused of running over and killing a man in downtown Pueblo has pleaded guilty to vehicular homicide.

The Pueblo Chieftain reported Friday that 29-year-old Rosalyn Hernandez struck a deal with prosecutors that calls for a prison term of up to 10 years for the Aug. 19 death of 25-year-old Christopher Piserchio. A charge of leaving the scene of an accident was dismissed.

Investigators say Hernandez was intoxicated when she ran over Piserchio as he was trying to break up a fight involving two men and two women. Piserchio died at a hospital, and Hernandez was arrested within 24 hours.

She is scheduled to be sentenced June 22.
