Woman accused in hit-and-run death back in Metro custody

A woman accused of leaving the scene of a hit-and-run crash that killed a man while he was pushing his granddaughter in stroller in November is back in the custody of Las Vegas police.

Galina Kilova, 29, of Las Vegas, was booked in the Clark County Detention Center Thursday where she faces two counts of failing to stop at the scene of an accident, police said.

Kilova kept driving after the Nov. 24 crash that killed Michael Grubbs, 63, police said. Grubbs was pushing his 18-month-old granddaughter at the time of the impact. The girl survived. It happened on the shoulder of Rainbow Boulevard, north of Capovilla Avenue, near the intersection at Warm Springs Road.

The woman turned herself into Las Vegas police the following week, bonded out of jail 12 hours later, and was later detained by the U.S Immigration and Customs Enforcement because her non-immigrant visa ran out six months after she entered the United States in 2006, police said. Kilova came to the U.S. from Bulgaria.

Kilova was rebooked Thursday and is scheduled to appear in Las Vegas Justice Court on Monday.
