Franklin hit-run case goes to prosecutor
An officer and a detective from the Franklin Police Department were meeting with a Milwaukee County prosecutor this afternoon to review potential charges against a 49-year-old man who allegedly fled after striking and killing a West Allis couple with his van on Christmas night, a police official said.
Franklin Police Capt. Clark Groen said potential charges included homicide by intoxicated use of a vehicle, hit-and-run causing death and failure to report an accident.
A decision on charges was expected later today or Friday morning.
Gary Kitchen, 53, and his wife, Barbara, 52, died on their way to a family Christmas gathering on S. 35th St., about 6 p.m. Tuesday.
According to police, the Kitchens were hit by a northbound car as they stood on the west side of the street, with Christmas gifts they were taking to family members gathered in the home of Gary Kitchen's father. They had parked their pickup truck on the roadway, which does not have sidewalks or a marked parking lane.
Groen said the suspect was being held in the county jail pending charges in the Kitchens' death and a potential parole violation.
The suspect was under court supervision in Texas for a previous offense, he said.
