ROCKINGHAM, N.C. -- An undocumented immigrant faces murder charges in connection with a deadly hit-and-run accident in Richmond County.

Rockingham police say 21-year-old Eduardo Alejandro didn't stop at a light on Highway 74 and hit another car.

Reginald McEachin, 25, was taken to Rockingham Memorial Hospital where he died.

Officers say Alejandro jumped from his vehicle and ran from the scene. Police chased him and called in K-9 units and caught him. Alejandro is charged with second-degree murder, hit-and-run, driving while impaired and reckless driving. He is in jail without bond.

Police are still looking for the passenger who was in Alejandro's car at the time of the crash.
