More disturbing details in chef's fatal hit and run
MIAMI (WSVN) -- Disturbing new details have been released in the hit and run that left a father dead, and it could land the accused in even more trouble.
Twenty-year-old Karlie Tomica is expected to face a judge Friday. She ran from our camera crew shortly after posting a bond of $10,000 last month, but now 7News has obtained a motion filed by the state in a Miami-Dade court to either revoke or increase her bond to $75,000.
Tomica stands accused of hitting and killing South Beach Executive Chef Stefano Riccioletti on Jan. 28 while he was on his way to work.
In the papers, the state says, Tomica, who is a bartender at Nikki Beach Club on South Beach, first "consumed excessive amounts of alcohol, presumably while at Nikki Beach, where she was employed."
Then, at about 5:30 a.m., she got into her boyfriend's Dodge Charger and hit Riccioletti with such force on Collins Avenue his body was thrown into a hotel driveway. When Tomica drove off, a Good Samaritan followed her. The motion states: "The defendant actively evaded the [Good Samaritan] and even made U-turns to attempt to lose the car following her."
The Good Samaritan stayed with her, however, and at Tomica's apartment where she stopped, police found body fragments on her car and in her hair.
The motion goes on to state she first refused a blood test. Then, when blood was taken, "toxicology results reveal a BAC [blood alcohol content] of .225 at 7:55 a.m. and a BAC of .208 at 9 a.m."
At the Miami Beach Police Station, where Tomica was taken after her arrest, the motion states: "the defendant fell asleep and began to loudly snore."
On Twitter, Tomica calls herself "Party Princess." The account has been deleted, and the state attorney's office says she tweeted days before the accident: "margaritas and spinach dip to celebrate the end of midterms."
Riccioletti's family has filed a lawsuit against Nikki Beach, accusing management of allowing Tomica to drink on the job even though she is underage.
