A woman plead not guilty Wednesday to charges in a fatal hit-and-run last month in Hialeah.
Natasha Boothe was the driver of a gold Chrysler van that killed 42-year-old Norkys Contreras on Oct. 25, prosecutors said.
According to the arrest warrant, the victim and Boothe got into a minor accident on West 12th Avenue and 29th Street. Boothe didn't pull over, so the victim and others in the car followed her to the parking lot of a nearby pawn shop.
The victim stood in front of Boothe's van to prevent her from leaving, but Boothe allegedly drove on. The victim jumped on top of the hood of Boothe's van and held on.
Witnesses told police they saw Boothe drive off at high speed with the victim on the hood. The victim fell off the hood six blocks later, and Boothe allegedly drove over the victim and kept going.
Several eyewitnesses took pictures of the van's tag and later identified Boothe as the driver. Surveillance footage also showed the moments before Boothe allegedly reversed the vehicle into the victim.
Boothe plead not guilty to charges of first-degree murder and leaving the scene of a deadly crash. She is being held without bond, and her criminal trial begins in two months.
If convicted, Boothe faces up to life in state prison.
