A 31-year-old man has been indicted in connection with the hit-and-run death of a woman who was found on the shoulder of Airport Freeway nearly two years ago.

On March 28, a  Tarrant County grand jury returned a two-count indictment against Christopher John Hughes, charging him with one count of leaving the scene of an accident involving serious bodily injury or death, a third-degree felony, and one count of criminally negligent homicide, a state-jail felony. Hughes is accused of hitting Tonya Page, of Watauga, with his vehicle on August 29, 2010, and then driving away.

The case was investigated by the Bedford Police Department and the Tarrant County Criminal District Attorney’s Office. Hughes was booked into the Tarrant County Jail on Saturday and released after posting $5,000 bail.
