WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ A 28-year-old Wichita woman who was involved last year in a fatal hit-and-run crash that killed a man riding a horse has been charged with trafficking drugs.

The Wichita Eagle reports Elease Childers was charged in federal court Thursday with possession with intent to distribute heroin. An affidavit alleges officers executing a search warrant in Wichita on March 11 arrested Childers and seized 8 ounces of black tar heroin.

Childers was being held in Sedgwick County jail on the federal charges and two probation violations. Online court documents didn't indicate that she had obtained an attorney.

Childers was among four people charged in connection with a July 5 collision that killed 49-year-old Lloyd Ferguson and his horse and seriously injured a 6-year-old boy.
