(WXYZ) — The woman charged in a deadly hit-and-run that killed a 55-year-old Warren man earlier this month has turned herself in.

Valerie Ann Bostle, 36, walked into the Dekalb County Sheriff's Office in Decatur, Georgia Monday night and surrendered to police, according 7 Action News reporter Anu Prakash. She was taken into custody without incident, deputies say.

Bostle was wanted in connection to the death of 55-year-old Peter Chisholm. On the night of June 5, police say Chisholm was hit and dragged for a mile before being hit a second time.

The driver of the second car did stop and call police, but the first driver did not.

Warren police are currently working on extraditing Bostle back to Michigan to "face prosecution on the following charges":

  • COUNT 1: HOMICIDE-MANSLAUGHTER WITH A MOTOR VEHICLE-15 YR FELONY
  • COUNT 2: HOMICIDE-MANSLAUGHTER-INVOLUNTARY-15 YR FELONY
  • COUNT 3: FAIL TO STOP AT THE SCENE OF AN ACCIDENT RESULTING IN SERIOUS INJURY- 5 YEAR FELONY

“This is the outcome for which we had hoped. The efforts by, and cooperation of, the Warren Police Department, the United Stated Marshals, and Crime stoppers, obviously led this suspect to believe that she had no other alternative but to surrender, " said Warren Police Commissioner Bill Dwyer.
