HOUSTON—League City police have arrested and charged a woman in connection with a hit-and-run wreck that left a cyclist dead last week.

Investigators said 45-year-old Kevin Muson, of League City, was riding his bike in the 1900 block of West Marina Bay Drive around 2:30 a.m. on March 13 when a car struck him.

Muson was transported to Clear Lake Regional where he was later pronounced dead.

League City police said the driver of the vehicle fled the scene, but stopped at the entrance of a nearby gated community.  Police said they were able to obtain clear video footage from the guard station depicting a woman removing a portion of her vehicle and placing it in her back seat.

The same day, police released the surveillance video hoping it would help them find leads.  Someone recognized the woman and after numerous interviews and information obtained from investigators, a warrant was obtained for Dena McKenzie, a 49-year-old League City woman. 

McKenzie is charged with accident involving death, a second-degree felony. Her bond was set at $25,000.
