(Batavia, OH.)—Todd Shaw, 51, has plead guilty to a fatal hit and run.

The man changed his plea at a hearing on Tuesday.

The incident happened in March when Shaw hit and killed Fred Cary, a Cincinnati County teacher, then fled the scene.

Shaw is charged with aggravated vehicular homicide, driving under the influence, and leaving the scene of the accident.


With changing his plea, Shaw will avoid his trial in August and a Clermont County judge will decide Shaw’s sentence.
