CLEVELAND -- Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Judge Michael J. Ryan has found the then-16-year-old driver accused of striking and killing Maxine Lobins, 81, of Fairview Park Jan. 9, 2013, guilty Tuesday afternoon.

The teen, now 18, will be sentenced in four weeks.

The teen was charged with aggravated vehicular homicide, failure to stop after an accident, vehicular homicide, falsification and certain acts prohibited.

The teen is set to appear back in court in four weeks for sentencing.

Lobins was crossing the road near Kamm's Corners when struck by an eastbound black SUV that didn't stop.

Assistant Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Norm Schroth said Lobins had been walking with her red walker toward a crosswalk and, because of snow and ice on the sidewalk, she was walking in the street. A witness described the vehicle to police and police also gathered surveillance footage from nearby security cameras.

Investigators later found the owner of the SUV and it was learned the owner's daughter had been driving.

Prosecutors also said that a review of the teen's cell phone records show her starting to text at the time of the accident.
