ALLENTOWN, Pa. (AP) — A Pennsylvania man has pleaded guilty in connection with a hit-and-run crash that killed a woman earlier this year.

Thirty-five-year-old Joshua Stockman, of South Whitehall Township, entered the plea Monday in Lehigh County Court.

Stockman's lawyer says he has apologized to the family of 32-year-old Ruby Marrero of Allentown.

Police say Marrero was walking to an Allentown corner store when she was hit in February. She died a week later.

The car that hit her was found abandoned a half-block away. Stockman later turned himself in.

Sentencing is scheduled for September.
