LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Prosecutors in Illinois want a local hit-and-run suspect extradited out of Nevada.
Colette Despain, 51, appeared in a Las Vegas courtroom Tuesday morning. She is accused of hitting and killing 48-year-old Ryan Billotte, a tow truck driver, while he worked on a car on the side of the highway.
Despain left the scene of the crash.
Her attorney said Illinois contacted Nevada authorities to put an extradition hold on her. 8 News Now reached out to the Clark County District Attorney’s Office and is awaiting additional information.
Despain remains in jail. She is due to have a bail hearing on April 13.
Nevada Highway Patrol said she was on probation at the time of the crash.
