PA- Warminster woman injured by N.J. man (in 2008) dies; DA mulls new charges

http://www.phillyburbs.com/news/loca...83b51b7d8.html

March 20, 2012

She was a soccer player, a graphic design student at Kutztown University, and a beloved daughter of a Warminster family.

On March 18, Christine McGhee, 23, died of severe brain injuries suffered in December 2008 during a hit-and-run involving her boyfriend, Michael Marrone of Evesham, N.J. He pushed her from his moving truck in a university parking lot during an argument, and she was dragged about 50 to 100 feet, according to the story in the Reading Eagle.

Berks County Assistant District Attorney Jonathan Kurland, who prosecuted Marrone, said Tuesday that her death could be ruled a murder, but it's too early to say.

"I'm limited in what I can say right now, but it is legally possible to have a charge of murder. Whether that happens still depends on what the evidence tells us. We're still in the process of going through the evidence," he said.

After a jury trial, Marrone was convicted of simple and aggravated assault and related offenses. He was sentenced in May 2010 to five to 20 years in prison and will be up for parole in three years.

Here are the earlier stories:

The hit and run happened around 3:30 a.m Friday in a parking lot near Schuylkill Hall, a dorm on the university's south campus.
The victim, Christine McGhee of Warminster, Bucks County, suffered serious head injuries.
McGhee was found by campus police, lying on the pavement. She was flown to Lehigh Valley Hospital in Allentown.
Late Friday, police described her condition as critical.

The new Christine McGhee lives in a vegetative state in a hospital bed in her Bucks County home.

There's little hope of recovery.
"She is no longer the sister I knew," McGhee's brother, James J. McGhee IV, 25, said Monday before Judge Thomas G. Parisi sentenced Michael P. Morrone to five to 20 years in state prison for dragging McGhee with his truck in a Kutztown University parking lot on Dec. 5, 2008.
