Grand jury indicts suspect driver in death of pedestrian

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) – A state grand jury has indicted a 27-year-old Anchorage man suspected of running over and killing his roommate.

State prosecutors say Corey Hoppe faces a manslaughter count in the death of 24-year-old Erin Bailey. He was indicted Wednesday.

Hoppe previously had been jailed on a charge of failure to render aid.

Police shortly before 5 p.m. Oct. 13 responded to an east Anchorage intersection and found Bailey seriously injured. They determined Bailey had gotten out of a sport utility vehicle after a disagreement and was run over by the driver making a right-hand turn.

Police determined the driver was Hoppe and stopped him eight hours later.

Bailey died at an Anchorage hospital.
