MAPLE VALLEY, Wash. - The teen girl suspected of killing a Maple Valley man turned herself in without incident and was expected to face a judge Friday during a preliminary hearing, authorities said.

Greg Moore, 53, was hit and killed while jogging when the girl who was behind the wheel of the sedan allegedly struck him in the 23800 block of SE 216th Street on the morning of July 18. The identity of the girl was not released because she is a juvenile.

During a hearing Friday, the presiding judge found probable cause for second-degree murder and hit-and run charges, a court spokesman said. She did not appear in court because her attorney waived her presence.

.As of Friday afternoon, the girl remained in custody because the defense did not address the issue of detention, the court spokesman said.

The King County Sheriff's Office said recently it had identified the suspect after the Toyota Camry she was driving during the fatal accident was recovered.

The sheriff's office tweeted Friday that she had turned herself in at the King County Sheriff's Office SeaTac office.
