Brockton man charged in fatal hit-and-run

May 6, 2014

BROCKTON, Mass. (AP) — A Brockton man has pleaded not guilty in connection with a fatal weekend hit-and-run that prosecutors said may have been related to a romantic rivalry.

Thirty-five-year-old Dana Waller was arraigned Monday on charges including manslaughter, motor vehicle homicide and leaving the scene after causing personal injury or death. He was ordered held on $100,000 bail and to surrender his passport.

Police say Waller struck 37-year-old Edward Dill III on Nilsson Street at about 2 a.m. Saturday.

Prosecutors said in court that witnesses reported seeing Waller run over Dill three times in a driveway. They said witnesses told investigators the two men may have been involved with the same woman.

Waller’s lawyer said outside court that witnesses have told inconsistent stories about the events surrounding Dill’s death.

Waller returns to court June 4.
