The distracted driver who ran a red light and killed a Lake Zurich motorcyclist in June was indicted Wednesday on a charge of reckless homicide.
Lora Hunt, 48, of Morris, previously told investigators she was painting her nails at the time of the May 2 crash.
She was charged with failure to reduce speed, but the charge was dropped to avoid potential double-jeopardy problems. She now faces a six-count indictment and up to five years in prison.
Hunt surrendered Thursday and was released on $10,000 bail.
Zaffke was wearing a helmet at the time of the crash, but died shortly after being taken to Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital in Lake Barrington.
Lake County Coroner Dr. Richard Keller said Zaffke suffered chest and abdominal injuries stemming from the collision.
