Windsor Police Service says formal charges have now been laid in a fatal hit and run that left a 7-year-old boy dead last month.

A 45-year-old Windsor man is now facing three charges: failing to stop and remain at the scene of an accident, criminal negligence causing death and obstruction of justice.

The community has rallied behind the family of Kuothhorko "Kuzi" James since the incident occurred at the intersection of Jefferson Blvd. and Haig Ave. on the evening of Sunday, November 15.
