Driver Identified in Hit and Run Accident that Killed Nicki Minaj's Father

The killer has turned himself in...

From Long Island News 12
The Mineola man accused in the hit-and-run that killed musician Nicki Minaj's father appeared in court Wednesday. Police say Charles Polevich, 70, left the scene after striking and killing Robert Maraj, 64, Friday.
Police say Manaj was walking in the street on Roslyn Road when he was struck and killed. They say if Polevich had stayed at the scene, and not been intoxicated, it's possible he would not have been charged.
Detective Lt. Stephen Fitzpatrick says there is no way to know if Polevich was under the influence, because he allegedly fled and hid his car in the garage of his home on Rosell Street. But nearby security cameras caught it all.
According to court documents and police, Polevich also allegedly got out of his car after striking Maraj, then "stood over the victim asked him if 'he was OK,' walked and returned to his vehicle and fled the scene."
