7-7 Two men arrested nearly 6 years after 55-year-old George Klinghammer was killed by a hit and run driver in Denver, Colorado on 10/10/2000. In many states the statute of limitation would have made their arrest impossible this many years after the crime. In others, there is no time limit to arrest a hit and run killer.
