Troopers make arrest in March fatal hit and run case


Three months later, two people have been arrested in a fatal hit and run case.

Troopers have arrested 46 year old Brian Timken of New Iberia and 25 year old Kayla Norris of Franklin in connection to a fatal hit and run on March 13 2015.

Investigators say, evidence left on the scene and numerous tips resulted in a Dodge Ram truck driven by Timken led to the arrests.

Troopers also determined that sometime after Timken struck 33 year old Kista L. Sedotal, 25 year old Kayla Norris of Franklin was driving a 1996 Mercury Sable and also struck Sedotal in the roadway.

Norris did not stop at the time of the crash.

Louisiana State I Troopers responded to a fatal crash on LA 182 east of Jeanerette just after 1 a.m. March 13, 2015.

Investigators say 33 year old Kista L. Sedotal of Jeanerette was walking on LA highway 182 and was struck by a westbound pickup truck.

After the pickup truck struck Sedotal, it fled the scene traveling west on LA Highway 182.

Sedotal was pronounced dead on scene by the St. Mary Parish Coroner’s Office.
