Syracuse (WSYR-TV) – A town of Clay woman who has been accused of hitting and killing a man while drunk driving on Park Street in the city of Syracuse was arraigned in county court on Tuesday.

Alicia Alampi of Surrey Lane was arraigned on a four count indictment that included vehicular manslaughter in the second degree.

In addition, Alampi has been charged with leaving the scene of an incident without reporting it, operating a motor vehicle with a BAC over .08, and driving while intoxicated.

Syracuse Police arrested Alampi in December 2013.

27-year-old Robert Bevard of Liverpool was killed during the incident on Park Street.

Police say they found Alampi and the Jeep Grand Cherokee she was allegedly driving at her home.

According to police, the damage to her vehicle indicated that it had struck a person.

Shortly after the incident, a source told NewsChannel 9 that a Sheriff’s Investigator was observed on surveillance video drinking with Alampi at an establishment at Destiny USA.

According to the source, the investigator may have been driving behind Alampi when the alleged incident occurred.

The source also said that a car driven by the investigator was impounded.

Sheriff Kevin Walsh acknowledged that a Sheriff's Investigator was being investigated after the incident.

Walsh told NewsChannel 9 that he did not believe it was a department vehicle.

He said the investigator remained on the job.

Alampi is currently free after posting $50,000 cash bail.

The next scheduled court date for her case is July 11.
