blog home Wrongful Death Bail Set in Fatal San Diego Hit and Run

By Renee Nordstrand on February 15, 2010

Bail has been set for $2 million in the case of a fatal San Diego hit and run, the San Diego Tribune reports.  The defendant, Tiffany St Ives, is accused of striking and killing 17-year-old Marlene Resendiz in 2007, as Resendiz crossed East Grand Avenue near Rose Street on foot.  After striking the victim, St. Ives drove for 400 yards with the victim on the hood of her car.  After the victim fell off of her car, St Ives continued driving and did not stop, allegedly going to great lengths to hide guilt through secret car repairs. Since this incident, St Ives has been involved in four other traffic collisions.

St Ives has pleaded not guilty to hit and run driving with death, which carries a sentence of up to four years in prison.
