Woman arrested in deadly hit-and-run released on bail

LAS VEGAS -- A 29-year-old woman involved in a deadly hit-and-run crash last Monday turned herself in to police Tuesday afternoon and is now released on $20,000 bail. 

Galina Kilova, of Las Vegas, faces a felony hit-and-run charge. She turned herself in at the Southwest Metro Police substation near Durango Drive and Sahara Avenue.

Clark County Detention Center records show Kilova posted bail Tuesday evening on the hit-and-run charge. 

This is not Kilova's first brush with the law. According to Metro Police, she was arrested in 2007 for driving without a license, failure to use due care and driving under the influence of alcohol.

The hit-and-run crash on Nov. 24 left 63-year-old Michael Grubbs dead and his 18-month-old granddaughter injured. Grubbs, who was pushing his granddaughter in a stroller, was hit around 10:50 a.m. near Rainbow Boulevard and Warm Springs Road.

Kilova's attorney, Herb Sachs, contacted the media last week to say that his client would surrender to police after the holiday weekend. He claims he had an agreement with police, but police said there was no deal made with him.

Police say the car, described as a dark gray Honda Civic, was driving on the shoulder to pass traffic. On Tuesday, Metro said they found a damaged gray compact car at an apartment complex about two miles from the crash scene.
