SHERWOOD (KATV) - A North Little Rock woman has turned herself in to police for a March hit-and-run accident in Sherwood that killed a child. The child died the same week.

Twenty-seven year old Kyisha Durham is charged with negligent homicide and failure to render aid by leaving the scene of a fatality accident. Each count is a misdemeanor.

Three year old Jaylen Diggs died after being hit by a car in the parking lot of the Park Crest Apartment complex on Manson Road.

Sherwood Police say that during the investigation they discovered that Durham was the driver of the car which was registered to her mother.

Durham turned herself in at the Sherwood Police Department Friday, July 19.

Morrisa Hobbs is the aunt of victim, Jaylen Diggs. She says, "Kyisha was basically processed and released. It was just $5,000 bond so she only had to pay $500 to get out. It just seems like, we were all getting excited something is finally getting done and we get a phone call, 'well, she was released on bond today.'
