Gracialla Shelton released from custody

Posted: Aug 08, 2018 2:06 PM Updated:

She should've made her first court appearance today. Instead, she's been released from custody. 54-year-old Gracialla Shinohara Shelton was given a Notice to Appear in three years.

As reported, the Asan woman was placed under arrest in connection to a deadly auto pedestrian crash in Anigua that occurred last month.

The victim, 54-year-old Willy Kias, was crossing the street from the gas station heading towards the Bell Tower when he was allegedly hit by Shelton's car.

His death marked the tenth auto pedestrian fatality of the year.

She faces charges of vehicular homicide, imprudent driving, and speeding in a posted zone.

Her son, Dr. Austin Shelton, issued the following statement: "Growing up, my mom always taught me to drive safely, especially on that dark stretch of road in Anigua. This was a tragic accident, and my family prays every day for the deceased and his family.  Anyone's mother could have been involved in an accident like this on that dark road. It is upsetting that there was a spectacle for her to be arrested and put in such a stressful situation after what was clearly an accident."

Gracialla Shelton is being represented by Attorney Randy Cunliffe.
