LITTLE VALLEY — A 74-year-old Jamestown woman faces 2 to 6 years in state prison for manslaughter stemming from an April 2018 hit-and-run incident that killed a 47-year-old Chautauqua County man in Randolph.
Marylou Johnson was sentenced Sept. 16 in Cattaraugus County Court on her conviction of second-degree manslaughter, a class C felony. The sentencing was reported by District Attorney Lori Pettit Rieman’s office.
The incident, which resulted in the death of Wilfredo Rodriguez-Colon, of Busti, occurred on April 15, 2018. The victim’s body was discovered April 21, 2018, off Swanson Hill Road in the town of Randolph by a passing ATV rider.
The State Police’s Bureau of Criminal Investigation out of Jamestown handled the investigation, which resulted in the arrest of Johnson nearly one year ago, Sept. 21, 2018. In addition to the manslaughter charge, Johnson was initially charged with second-degree vehicular manslaughter, second-degree assault, driving while intoxicated and leaving the scene of an incident without reporting serious physical injury.
