Nashua woman pleads guilty in 2014 hit-and-run death

The Associated Press

NASHUA (AP) — A Nashua woman charged in a 2014 hit-and-run death has agreed to plead guilty to three offenses in exchange for serving a minimum of three years in prison.

The Telegraph reports 40-year-old Cara Smith pleaded guilty to negligent homicide, conduct after an accident with injury or death resulting and insurance fraud.

The Nashua resident was arrested about two weeks after 63-year-old Robert Derome was found unresponsive and not breathing on the side of a road. Police turned to security cameras from nearby businesses to help identify Smith, who fled the scene.

Video images first showed Smith's vehicle passing through the intersection where Derome was found with properly working headlights. Later footage from a gas station showed the car with its passenger-side headlight out.
