LOUISVILLE, KY- A Louisville woman appeared in court Saturday charged with the murder of an 11-year-old boy. Police said Angela Baumia turned herself in Friday night after the court issued a warrant for her arrest.

Police said Baumia was driving drunk when she struck soon-to-be sixth grader Dylan Geitgey off Shenandoah Drive Saturday June 26 at 8:03 p.m.

Geitgey died from his injuries at Kosair Children's Hospital on Sunday June 27.

In addition to murder, police said Baumia is charged with operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated, wanton endangerment, criminal mischief, disregarding a stop sign and failure to maintain required insurance.

Shenandoah Drive is located in the City of Fincastle. Residents reacted to Baumia's arrest.

" I think it is a good thing she is being charged because first thing, she shouldn't be drinking and driving in our neighborhood and she killed our friend Dylan so I think that's good thing," said Dorian Young, a friend of Dylan Geitgey.

Fincastle Resident Bernard Handley described Dylan as a familiar face and said he heard the accident from his home near the crash scene. He said he read about the charges in the newspaper.

"first reaction was good, then too sorry for her," Handley said. "Her life is gone basically but all in all, I'm glad that she got what she deserved too. I'm glad it is over with and Dylan is...he's at home."

Geitgey family Spokesperson Darren Kreakie released the following statement regarding Baumia's arrest Friday July 2:

"The family is aware of the charges and that she has been arrested. The family has no comment. They want to focus on burying their child."
