Trial in hit-and-run pushed back to May 18A trial scheduled to start Tuesday in Cass County District Court for a woman charged with leaving the scene of an accident involving serious personal injury has been delayed.
The trial for Jennifer Elena Grieger was pushed back to May 18, said Mark Boening, an assistant Cass County state’s attorney.
Grieger is accused in a suspected Sept. 15 hit-and-run that injured Melody Leavell, a friend of hers.
Leavell died Jan. 9 in an overdose on painkillers she was taking in the wake of the accident, according to her mother.
