Lexington man arrested in 2017 deadly hit-and-run crash

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ)- Lexington Police says an arrest has been made in a 2017 deadly hit-and-run accident on Old Todds Road.

Police say 34-year-old Anthony Kotheimer was arrested Wednesday, March 20 after a sealed indictment was issued for charges of leaving the scene of an accident, and tampering with physical evidence. That indictment was unsealed late last week.

 Police say Kotheimer is accused to have hit 38-year-old Aungra Edwards. Edwards was walking along Old Todds Road in the overnight hours on November 5, 2017. Edwards’ body was found several hours later on the side of the road.

Police say evidence found at the scene and tips from the public helped police develop Kotheimer as a suspect.
