Sentencing hearing postponed for Abilene woman involved in fatal hit and run

Teresa Ann Dominy

Teresa Ann Dominy's sentencing hearing has been postponed for the second time since November 2018.

Dominy, 65, plead guilty in October to accident involving death for killing 55-year-old Robin Caldwell with her SUV. She hit Caldwell while she was walking along the I-20 service road near Hwy 351.

After speaking with the Taylor County District Attorney's Office on Tuesday, Caldwell's ex-husband Glenn was under the impression that the state would recommend probation.

"She was hit, dragged over 100 feet, and nobody cares," Caldwell said.

But District Attorney Jim Hicks told KTXS on Wednesday night that he believes Caldwell misunderstood that conversation.

"A death was involved. We don't take that lightly," Hicks said. "We will seek justice for the family."

Hicks said his office typically calls a victim or their family to explain the possible outcomes of the sentencing phase, which in this case could include probation.

Dominy's sentencing hearing was scheduled for Friday at 1:30 p.m. in Judge Thomas Wheeler's courtroom at the Taylor County Courthouse. Her attorney said he was "unable to appear in court."

Glenn Cadlwell was at the Taylor County Courthouse with family and friends Friday frustrated that the sentencing had been delayed once again.

"It's unbelievable," said Caldwell.

Judge Thomas Wheeler's office has not set a reset date.
