VALPARAISO, Ind. (AP) - Prosecutors have charged a northwest Indiana woman in the hit-and-run death of a 50-year-old man whose body was found along Interstate 94 a few weeks ago.

Patricia A. Callahan of Portage has been charged with leaving the scene of an accident that resulted in death, reckless homicide and insurance fraud. The Times reports Callahan told her insurer she struck a deer and construction equipment that caused about $4,400 in damage to her car.

LaPorte resident Ricky Kimble's girlfriend reported him missing Aug. 5. His body was found the next day by a mowing crew. An autopsy showed injuries consistent with being struck by a vehicle at high speed.

An automated Porter County jail information system didn't list Callahan and there was no phone number for her in Portage.
