A Woman Accused Of Killing 4-Year Old Arcadia Girl Faces New Charges. She is now accused of Grand Theft Auto. The woman killed a 4-year-old and injuring another child when she crashed into an Arcadia day care.

According to the Arcadia Police Department, a man reported on March 17 that 18-year-old Kiara Morant had took his Jeep without permission. This report came a day after Morant is accused of crashing the vehicle into the day care center. The man told police that Morant, had been living with him for a little over a week, had taken the keys to his vehicle from his bedroom while he was at work.

Morant had told the Florida Highway Patrol that she had been given permission to drive the Jeep despite her not having a driver’s license.

According to the report, the daughter of the Jeep’s owner told officers that Morant had contacted her via a Facebook video call hysterical about having wrecked the vehicle and thinking she may have killed someone.

The bond for Morant’s grand theft auto charge is set at $1,500. Her initial bond for charges related to the crash was $200,000.
