A Lincoln woman is facing a harsher penalty in a deadly hit and run case because of a change in the law.

Tuesday, 25-year-old Kinley Queen appeared in Lancaster County court.

She was originally facing up to five years in prison for leaving the scene of an injury accident, now that increases to a 20 year maximum, 15 years longer than originally thought.

Her charge was upgraded from a Class 3-A felony to a Class 3 felony.

The increased penalty stems from a law change that took effect January first of this year making it a more serious crime.
The charges were initially filed incorrectly.

On April 1st, Police say Queen confessed to hitting 50-year-old William Springer with her minivan nearly two days earlier. Springer died at the scene.

She fled but later turned herself into police.

Queen is scheduled to be back in court on June 20th.
