DENVER — Denver’s district attorney filed charges Friday against two people who are charged as being accessories to a fatal hit-and-run in Denver last month.

Kelly Carey-Morehead, 42, and Kiki Douglas, 29, are both charged with being an accessory to crime and false reporting, said Denver DA spokeswoman Lynn Kimbrough.

Investigators believe both “provided false identifying information and rendered other assistance to Latoya Nelson following a fatal hit/run crash,” Kimbrough said.

Nelson is accused of causing a fatal crash that killed an 85-year-old man and fleeing from the scene.

She was charged last week with vehicular homicide and leaving the scene of an accident resulting in death, among other charges.
