Suspect in Bourne hit-and-run remains free
BARNSTABLE, Mass. -- A Plymouth woman accused of a fatal hit-and-run in Bourne early New Year's Day has been allowed to remain free on $1,000 bail, angering her alleged victim's father.
Andrea Mastandrea pleaded not guilty on Tuesday at her arraignment in Barnstable Superior Court to charges of motor vehicle homicide, driving an uninsured motor vehicle and leaving the scene of an accident causing death.
She is accused of striking and killing 17-year-old Andrew Dexter Jr. while he was walking home from a New Year's Eve party early on Jan. 1. His body was found hours later behind a guardrail by a man walking to work.
Andrew Dexter Sr. told the Cape Cod Times that it's "beyond belief" that the 29-year-old Mastandrea is allowed to remain free while he will never see his son again.
