CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

There are new charges for the man accused of hitting and killing a runner in Mt. Auburn last year.

Thomas Stidhum, 24, crashed into 57-year-old Catherine Chatfield before fleeing the scene in December. He's been indicted on charges of aggravated vehicular homicide, vehicular homicide, tampering with evidence, and failure to stop after an accident.

The new charges are connected to a separate crash that happened just a month prior.

Police say Stidhum was clocked by Springfield Township Officer going more than 95 miles an hour on State Route 126 before exiting at Hamilton Avenue. He was unable to make the turn onto Hamilton Avenue and crashed into a stopped car and fled the scene on food.

He faces charges of operating under the influence of marijuana, driving under suspension and obstruction of official business in that November 2015 crash.
