Galina Stoyanova Kilova appeared before a judge during a preliminary hearing at the Regional Justice Center, Wed. Dec. 31, 2014. Kilova is accused in a hit-and-run on Nov. 24 that killed 63-year-old Michael Grubbs and injured his 18-month-old granddaughter.

A Nevada state court jury is due to hear more testimony Wednesday in the trial of a Bulgarian woman accused of driving away after her car struck and killed a grandfather pushing a stroller on the shoulder of a busy Las Vegas road nearly a year ago.

Galina Stoyanova Kilova pleaded not guilty in the crash that killed 63-year-old Michael Grubbs and left Grubbs' 18-month-old granddaughter minor injuries in an overturned stroller.

A motorist testified Tuesday that he witnessed the crash and tried unsuccessfully to follow the Honda Civic after the November 2014 crash.

The 29-year-old Kilova could face up to 15 years in prison if she's convicted of failure to stop at the scene of a crash causing injury or death.

She surrendered to police eight days later.
