BROCKTON, Mass. (WHDH) -
A Brockton man was arraigned in district court on charges after a hit-and-run claimed the life of a 36-year-old man.
The Plymouth County DA announced that 35-year-old Dana Waller was arraigned on charges of manslaughter, motor vehicle homicide, and leaving the scene after causing injury or death.
The accident reportedly occurred on Nilsson Street in Brockton early Saturday morning.
Waller's bail was set at $100,000 and a probable case date was set for June 4.
Prosecutors reportedly added the more serious manslaughter charge after witnesses said the incident was not an accident.
Prosecutors said Waller and Dill knew each other and may have been involved in a love triangle.
Waller's family and friends left the courtroom without comment. His lawyer said the three witnesses were telling three different stories and the case was far from over.
Eye witnesses reported seeing the sports utility vehicle strike Dill as he stood in a driveway adjacent to Nilsson Street. They said the vehicle then backed up, hitting Dill again and drove forward, running over him a third time.
The vehicle was found at Waller’s home with a stain that appeared to be blood on the undercarriage, according to the Plymouth County DA.
The matter is under investigation by the State Police Detectives assigned to the Plymouth County District Attorney’s Office and the Brockton Police.
Anyone with information is urged to contact the State Police at (508) 923-4205 or the Brockton Police at (508) 941-0234.
