ABILENE, TX -- An Abilene woman who ran over and killed a person in 2017 and left the scene was sentenced to 60 days in jail and eight years probation Friday.
In what was very reminiscent of the Michael Keene trial in Eldorado where a white jury found a white man not guilty of killing a black special needs woman when he hit her with his car and left her to die on the roadside in San Angelo made headlines.
KTXS is reporting that 65-year-old Teresa Ann Dominy pleaded guilty in October in Abilene to driving the vehicle which killed Robbin Caldwell in the 600 block of East Stamford in Abilene. She was sentenced Friday.
Court documents indicate Dominy while sitting at the light at Hwy 351, "she turned on her interior light and could see that the passenger side of her windshield was smashed," the document says. "She recalled thinking that she should go back and also that she should call someone."
But she did not stop to check what she hit or call anyone for help.
As we reported in March 2018, Gary Michael Keene's trial for manslaughter was moved from San Angelo to Eldorado in part because of pretrial publicity by San Angelo Live.
Gisele Jarmon was a 23-year-old special needs person when she died after being struck by a vehicle while walking in the access road on Loop 306 near Southwest Blvd. during a dark, rainy night in June of 2015. Keene was allegedly driving the vehicle that struck and killed her. He was 20 at the time. He was acquitted of the charges against him causing her death.
