PHOENIX - Police say they have arrested a man in connection with a hit-and-run crash earlier this month that killed a woman walking on a Phoenix sidewalk.
Phoenix Police Sgt. Trent Crump said Christopher W. Chevalier is being charged with manslaughter, tampering with physical evidence and leaving the scene of a fatal collision.
Anna Blaze, 41, was walking near 11th Street and Northern Avenue around 5 p.m. on March 3 when she was struck by a red 1984 Alfa Romeo two-door convertible, police said.
Police were expected to release the latest information on the case at a 2:30 p.m. news conference with the victim's family. They have not yet announced the name of the suspect.
The owner of the car came down to the police station the day after the crash and gave officers the keys, but officials told ABC15 the man invoked his right to remain silent.
The car owner was not named a suspect in the case and no arrest was made, but he reportedly resembled the suspect description that witnesses gave police.
Police have not yet said if Chevalier is the owner of the car.
