BILOXI, Miss. (AP) The pedestrian killed by an alleged hit-and-run driver in Biloxi over the weekend has been identified as 70-year-old David Honarka, of Greenback, Tenn.
The Sun Herald reports Harrison County Coroner Gary Hargrove released his name Monday after locating relatives.
Hargrove says Honarka would often visit Biloxi casinos while his wife was visiting with relatives.
Honarka had rented a room on U.S. Highway 90 and was struck by a vehicle about 2:30 a.m. Saturday.
Police say 32-year-old Shumarcus Taiwain Henderson Sr., of Gulfport, is held on a charge of leaving the scene of an accident resulting in death. His wife, 29-year-old Angela Marie Henderson, is held on a charge of accessory after the fact.
It was unclear whether the Hendersons have attorneys.
