Jury trial date set for suspect in hit-and-run
Feb 20, 2013 - From staff reports
A jury trial has been scheduled for an Idaho woman charged in a fatal hit-and-run collision that took place in December at the Rezeride Roadhouse Saloon west of Kinnear.
Alma Mosho, 33, of Fort Hall, Idaho, pleaded not guilty last week to two charges of aggravated homicide by vehicle. The first count alleges Mosho committed the crime while driving a vehicle recklessly, while count two alleges she committed the crime while under the influence of alcohol. Her bond has been set at $50,000, and her trial was scheduled for 1 p.m. May 13.
Coroner Ed McAuslan said Michelle Littleshield, 35, of St. Stephen's, died at about 2 a.m. Dec. 3 of blunt force trauma from the crash. Another woman reportedly was with Littleshield in the Rezeride parking lot where the accident occurred; the second woman was transported to Riverton Memorial Hospital to be treated for non-life-threatening injuries.
Witnesses at the scene of the crash reportedly described Mosho's silver Nissan car as being involved. A Wind River Police Department officer pulled the vehicle over on Wyoming Highway 132 about 20 minutes after the incident; the officer said Mosho was the sole occupant and operator of the car, which bore damage consistent with reports from witnesses at the Rezeride. The WRPD arrested Mosho at that time for driving under the influence of alcohol, but she was extradited from the Wind River Indian Reservation the next day.
