WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — The woman charged with the hit-and-run death of a cyclist last week made her first court appearance this afternoon.

Police found Judith Nemeth’s damaged car Friday evening. She turned herself into Wilmington Police early Saturday morning.

Nemeth is charged with felony hit and run and misdemeanor death by motor vehicle. She was in court today accompanied by her mother.

Her attorney says this is Nemeth’s first offense and Nemeth wants to meet and speak with the victim’s family. Today, though, she had very little to say. Nemeth’s mother instead uttered the word “sorry.”

The family of victim Zachary Tyler did not want to go on camera.

The judge left Nemeth’s bond at $25,000, but he revoked her licence while the case continues.
