A Cross Lanes woman charged with leaving the scene of an accident causing death pleaded not guilty in Kanawha Circuit Court on Wednesday.
Jenea Sherman, 32, was indicted on the felony charge by a Kanawha grand jury and also on a misdemeanor charge of driving on a revoked license in a hit-and-run accident July 15 that killed a St. Albans pedestrian.
She pleaded not guilty to both charges before Judge James O. Holliday and is scheduled to go on trial on March 15.
Sherman posted a $150,000 property bond and had been ordered held on home confinement, but in early November she was taken to South Central Regional Jail after she violated the terms of home confinement. Her attorney has requested a hearing on that violation in hopes of having her released.
The Kanawha County Sheriff's Department arrested Sherman after a month-long investigation into the death of Mary "Red" McCallister, 50. Her body was found in a ditch along U.S. 35 two days after she was struck.
Deputies discovered Sherman's rollback-style wrecker truck at a Wiseman Drive home in St. Albans. They said the homeowner told them Sherman had asked him to hide the vehicle there because she feared she had hit a child.
