Prosecutors have charged a teenager with adult felony charges in the hit-and-run death of a 64-year-old Omaha man.
Douglas County Prosecutor Don Kleine said Mikala R. Rinehart, 17, was charged with leaving the scene of an accident causing death, a felony that could lead to a sentence of one to 20 years in prison.
Frank D. Huerta was hit near 42nd and H Streets around 10:45 p.m. Friday.
Rinehart is being held in the Douglas County Youth Detention Center. A judge set her bond at $15,000. She would have to pay $1,500 to be released.
Police still are investigating the accident, and additional charges could be filed depending on the results of the investigation, Kleine said.
