Man charges in hit-and-run fatality in western Missouri
HARRISONVILLE (AP) — A 20-year-old man faces charges in a hit-and-run fatality in western Missouri.
The Cass County Sherriff's office said in a release Thursday that Cody J. Alford of Peculiar has been charged with felony leaving the scene of a motor vehicle accident in the death of 32-year-old Megan Wheeler.
Wheeler's body was found Sunday in a ditch along an interstate highway north of Harrisonville, where she lived.
The sheriff's department says Alford is in custody on $10,000 bond. It's unclear if he has a lawyer.
