DALLAS — Dallas police say they've arrested a suspect in connection to a hit-and-run that killed a man in early November.

The department shared on Dec. 7 that 22-year-old Eddaria Lawrence was arrested for the death of 33-year-old Bo Stephens. According to them, Lawrence has been charged for Accident Involving Death (Failure to Stop and Render Aid) and Manslaughter.

The hit-and-run happened shortly after midnight on Saturday, Nov. 5, in the 9900 block of Forest Lane.

Officers believe Stephens stepped onto the road while on his phone when Lawrence allegedly hit him. They said Stephens was thrown off of the roadway and into a brick wall.

Lawrence didn't stop to help before leaving the scene, according to police. Stephens later died from his injuries.
