WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ A Wichita doctor is charged with killing a
lawn service worker after hitting him and then driving off with the
body atop his van.
Sixty-seven-year-old Mohammad Sarrafizadeh made his first appearance Wednesday in Sedgwick County Court on a
felony charge of failure to stop at an accident resulting in death.
He also is charged with misdemeanor vehicular homicide.
The Wichita Eagle reports that Sarrafizadeh's attorney, Dan Monnat, said the doctor had a stroke that made him unaware of the accident.
Sarrafizadeh was arrested in June, the day after 31-year-old
Ramon Martinez-Limon was killed. Police say the doctor apparently
drove for three miles with the man's body on top of his van.
