The 19-year-old San Jose man accused of running over and killing a neighbor was arraigned Thursday on murder charges.

Richard Delgado did not enter a plea, pending the appointment of a public defender.

Police say Delgado was confronted by a group of neighbors Monday night, after he drove into a fence.

Investigators say he drove back to his nearby home, got another car, returned, and hit and killed a 46-year-old woman on her front lawn.

Delgado ran from the scene, but was arrested minutes later.
