Charges reduced in hit and run case

Charges against the woman accused in a deadly hit and run crash in Nipomo were reduced on Thursday.

Marie Coyner had been charged with felony manslaughter in connection to the death of Christopher Tietjen, who was struck and killed by a car along Thompson Avenue in November of 2012. On Thursday, that charge was reduced to a misdemeanor.

Coyner previously entered a not guilty plea but will be back in court on April 10 to enter a new plea.
