Police in the suburban Houston community of League City announced on Tuesday that they had arrested and charged a local woman for the hit and run death of a cyclist. A spokesperson told KHOU television that Dena McKenzie, 49, was identified after the department received more than 1,000 tips related to an online video.

The victim, 45-year-old Kevin Munson, was riding his bicycle at approximately 2:30 a.m. on March 13 when he was struck and killed. Witnesses described the car, which left the scene, as a light-colored four-door sedan. A nearby gated community's surveillance cameras caught the image of a woman attempting to repair damage to a similar vehicle just minutes later.

League City police released the video, since viewed more than 86,000 times, to the public and asked for tips to the driver's identity. McKenzie, who is a nurse at a local hospital, was identified within hours. Subsequent investigation led to a warrant for the arrest of the divorced mother of two grown children. As of Wednesday, McKenzie was being held on $25,000 bond and charged with a second-degree felony.

Munson leaves behind two children, aged 11 and 16.
