Per NBC, a man turned himself in to Norristown Police Wednesday and was charged in connection with the hit-and-run death of a Vietnam veteran.
Nemias Perez-Severiano, 31, is charged with accidents involving death or personal injury, accidents involving damage to attended vehicle or property, reckless driving and other related offenses.
Perez-Severiano’s lawyer did not return a call for comment on the case.
The charges stem from the hit-and-run death of Samuel Jackson, 67, just hours before Veterans Day.

Breitbart reports an illegal alien living in Pennsylvania is accused of killing a Vietnam War Veteran the day before Veterans Day, according to law enforcement officials.
Nemias Perez Severiano, a 31-year-old illegal alien from Mexico, is accused of killing Samuel Jackson, a disabled 69-year-old who served as a Marine in the Vietnam War, the day before Veterans Day this year in Norristown, Pennsylvania, according to the Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office.
On November 10, police said Severiano was driving drunk when he hit and killed Jackson before fleeing the scene of the accident. According to court records obtained by CBS Philly, the illegal alien had been drinking for five hours at a nearby bar before the fatal crash.
“While at the bar [Severiano] indicated he consumed seven to eight Modelo beers,” the arrest records stated. “[Severiano] informed the detectives that when he left the bar, he was ‘a little drunk.’”
Jackson’s sister, Peggy Jackson, said her brother “loved the Marines” and was “so proud to have served his country.”
“It was basically his day, it’s what he fought for,” Jayden Guidici, Jackson’s grandson, told ABC 6 News of his grandfather’s love of Veterans Day.
“Why can’t you stop, see if he was okay, see if he was alive, see if he was breathing,” Guidici asked of Severiano’s alleged fleeing of the scene.
