A woman accused of fatally striking her partner with a truck and then leaving the scene last month has been charged with murder, police said Monday.

The fatal collision happened on Oct. 26 in the 1000 block of Gilman Avenue in the city's Bayview District.

Officers responded to a report of a person down in a parking lot and upon arrival, they found a man suffering from apparent injuries.

He was taken from the scene to the hospital, but died a short while later, police said. The city's medical examiner's office later identified him as 41-year-old Robert Walsh.

After investigating Walsh's death and determining that he had been struck by a truck, officers were able to identify a suspect driver as 42-year-old Berneca Morton, police said.

Morton has been booked into jail on suspicion of homicide, felony hit-and-run and corporal injury of a spouse or cohabitee, according to police.

Morton, who is being held without bail, is set to appear in court on Tuesday.
