Virginia Beach, Va. – A 911 tape was released Wednesday in the case of a Sarah Flanders, who was found guilty Tuesday of running over and killing her friend, Richard Pentz.

The call was made by a Dominion Power worker who found Pentz fighting for his life near Plaza Middle School on September 20th, 2014. That worker found Pentz after he testified in court that Flanders’ herself went up to his crew to tell him “a man had been hit and was bleeding to death” and then took off.

The call was made around 6:00 am on that September morning, but by 9:17 am Pentz was dead. The Medical Examiner ruling blunt force trauma to chest as the cause of death.

Flanders was found guilty of both hit and run and felony murder. She now faces 50 years behind bars; however, her attorney says they plan to appeal.
