A 34-year-old Munhall man has been arrested and charged in connection with the New Year's Day hit-and-run death of a woman in Turtle Creek.

William Lekovitch is awaiting arraignment on charges of homicide by motor vehicle, involuntary manslaughter and numerous other offenses, an Allegheny County police spokesperson said.

County police said that the 60-year-old victim, identified in broadcast reports as a Wilkinsburg woman, was walking in the 200 block of Penn Avenue Extension when she was struck by a vehicle sometime before 6:35 a.m. Friday (Jan. 1).

Turtle Creek police responded and found the victim suffering from multiple injuries and the vehicle that had struck her, abandoned, nearby, and the driver nowhere in the area.

The victim died of her injuries in a hospital on Sunday evening, county police said. Lekovitch surrendered to police without incident. The investigation is ongoing.
