An woman accused of the hit and run death of a mother of three in June 2013, has been found guilty on all counts.

28-year-old Demetria Harris was speeding on West Oglethorpe when she struck 31-year-old Natosha McCray, who was walking across the street.

Harris was convicted of vehicular homicide, hit and run, fleeing the scene, and several other traffic violations.

Police say she carried Harris on the hood of her car more than 800 feet before her body fell off.     

Prosecutors said Harris then struck a building and a tree, injuring herself and her passenger as she tried to get away from police.

A sentencing date for Harris has not been set.
