WASHINGTON, DC (WUSA) --- Closing arguments and jury deliberations begin for the hit-and-run case against 31-year-old Jorida Davidson inside DC Superior Court.
1. Voluntary manslaughter
2. Leaving after a collision with an injury
3. Driving under the influence - first offense.
The maximum sentence for voluntary manslaughter is 30 years in prison, according to the U.S. District Attorney's Office.
On Oct. 7, 2010, Davidson of Chevy Chase, Md., drove an SUV and hit 24-year-old Kiela Marie Ryan around 1:35 a.m. on Connecticut Ave in Dupont Circle.
Ryan was out celebrating her birthday at night. She had been getting out of a car before she was struck. Police say her body was thrown 21 feet. Ryan was pronounced dead at the hospital.
Police said Davidson left the scene but not before a cyclist was able to follow and get the license plate ID.
Davidson turned herself into police the next morning. Her car was also impounded. Police say she refused a breathalyzer test.
