Two people have been charged in connection with the death of a pedestrian killed in a Labor Day hit and run accident on Long Island last year.

Prosecutors say 29-year-old Nicole Grammerstorf, of Melville, was driving an SUV in Huntington Station when she hit Luis Flores, a dishwasher who was walking on Jericho Turnpike. They say she called acquaintance Mark Monserrat, a 37-year-old auto mechanic who fixed up the car and sold it.

Grammerstorf was charged with leaving the scene of an accident without reporting it. Charges against Monserrat included tampering with evidence. Both pleaded not guilty at their arraignment on Thursday.

Grammerstorf's attorney says she's innocent and that she had sold the car before the incident.

Monserrat's attorney said his client had purchased the car from someone else.
