Driver faces homicide charges

The woman who is accused of striking and killing 12-year-old Lynneah Browning with her car in late 2012 has been charged with homicide by vehicle and improper lane usage.

Charnelle Ann Martin-Gaillard, 36, turned herself in to the Newton County Sheriff’s Office Monday and was bonded out the same day.

Her bond was set at $5,700.

Georgia State Patrol said previously that Browning had been walking along the side of Ga. Highway 81 when she was struck by a 2005 Toyota Camry.

Martin-Gaillard was traveling northbound just past the first Oak Hill Road entrance. Then Martin-Gaillard called for help around 6:59 a.m.

Several hours later, Browning, who had stayed home sick from school that day, was identified by dental records.
