A Liverpool woman will face a grand jury after she allegedly hit and killed a man while driving drunk last week.
The case against 39-year-old Alicia Alampi of Liverpool came before Judge Jeffrey Merril in Syracuse City Court Wednesday morning, and was waived to a grand jury. Alampi is charged with vehicular manslaughter, leaving the scene of a fatal crash, and driving while intoxicated for allegedly hitting 27-year-old Robert Bevard, also of Liverpool, with her car just after midnight on December 13.
Police say Bevard was walking along Park Street near Destiny USA when he was hit by Alampi, who continued driving. He was discovered laying in the middle of the road. Emergency crews arrived and gave Devard medical treatment, but he died at the scene.
Police say they found Alampi's license plate at the scene and traced it to her home on Surrey Lane in Liverpool. They say the damage to her Jeep was consistent with hitting a human body.
An Onondaga County grand jury will now consider whether to formally indict Alampi on these charges.
