YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - Kylee Barletto, the woman charged in the death of a Shenango Township police officer, was released from the hospital Monday and booked at the Mahoning County Jail.

21 News was the only news team to capture video of 26-year-old Barletto, of New Castle, as she arrived at the Mahoning County Jail after being released from St. Elizabeth's Hospital just before 6 p.m. 

Barletto has been treated at the hospital since Thursday for a fractured nose and fractured ribs.  Her attorney said she had not been eating since the crash, adding she was having trouble remembering some things.

She is charged in Pennsylvania with homicide by vehicle, involuntary manslaughter, and aggravated assault as well as driving without a proper license in connection to the death of officer William "Jerry" McCarthy Thursday night.

The cruiser McCarthy was riding in was broad sided by Barletto's car while she was fleeing New Castle police.

Officer Michael Lynch, who was driving the Shenango Township Police cruiser, was seriously injured, but has been released from the hospital.  He has a hip injury and an ankle injury and is expected to be off the job for several months to fully heal.

Barletto is expected to be in court as early as Tuesday for an extradition hearing to transfer her back to Pennsylvania to face her charges.
