    Police Arrest Driver in Double Fatal Hit-and-Run

    Stamford, Connecticut, police have arrested a suspected hit-and-run driver officers have been looking for in a double fatal crash from last month.

    Felicia Burl, 32, of Bridgeport, was traveling southbound on Alvord Lane in a 2002 Nissan Altima on Nov. 7 at 8:37 p.m. when she ran a red light and slammed into the passenger side of a 2007 BMW, police said. Her passenger, Henry Nixon, 50, of Stamford, was ejected from Burl's car and died at Stamford Hospital from his injuries.

    Anthony Andriulli, 73, the driver of the BMW, was crossing the intersection on West Main Street in the westbound direction when the collision happened and he was seriously injured, police said. His wife, Judith Andriulli, 70, who was in the front passenger seat, died in the hospital on Nov. 8. The couple is from the Cos Cob section of Stamford.

    The Nissan Altima driver ran from the car after the crash. Police identified Burl as the missing driver through forensic analysis of the crime scene, police said.

    United States Marshals and Stamford police located Burl at an address on Greenwood Hill Street in town and brought her into custody, police said. Her connection to the address is unclear.

    Police charged her with two counts of second-degree manslaughter, second-degree assault and two counts of felony-level evading responsibility, police said.

    Police are holing her in custody on a $500,000 court-set bond and she is scheduled to appear in Stamford Superior Court on Dec. 4.

    Stamford's digital forensics, crime scene, narcotics and organized crime unites assisted the Collision Analysis & Reconstruction Squad in the investigation of the crash.
