SYRACUSE, N.Y. — Three of the five people facing charges in connection to a hit-and-run that killed 27-year-old Larry Maturo on June 11, have been indicted.
Vontelle Sparks, Ashley Cuozzo, and Michelle Livingston were indicted in Onondaga County Court Friday.
Vontelle Sparks was indicted on charges of:
Ashley Cuzzo, identified by state police as Sparks' girlfriend, was indicted on charges of tampering with physical evidence and conspiracy.
Michelle Livingston, who was identified by state police as Cuozzo's mother, was also indicted on charges of tampering with physical evidence, conspiracy, and falsely reporting an incident.
On July 11, Maturo and his bicycle were found by a passerby and a trooper in the Town of Clay just outside the village of North Syracuse within moments of the collision at about 6:30 a.m. The passerby told state police they saw debris fly into the air from the collision. Troopers say Maturo was heading home from Planet Fitness and was just .2 miles away when he was struck.
According to court documents obtained by CNYCentral, Sparks hasn't had a valid license for some time.
The New York State Department of Motor Vehicles said of all the charges listed above he was convicted on three of those.
