Boy, 12, charged with murder of woman hit by car in Sheffield

A 12-year-old boy has been charged with the murder of a 60-year-old woman who died after being hit by a car in Sheffield, police have said.

Marcia Grant died on Wednesday after being hit by a car in the Greenhill area, police said. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

The mother and grandmother was remembered as a “pillar of the community”.

South Yorkshire Police have since charged a 12-year-old boy with the murder of Ms Grant.

He is due to appear Sheffield Youth Court on Saturday April 8, 2023.

Previously, Ms Grant’s family said: “Marcia was a warm, loving and dedicated wife, mother, grandmother, sister and friend and a pillar of her community.

“Her loss has already sent shockwaves through all who knew her or was lucky enough to be included in her orbit.

“We ask for privacy at this time while further investigations are under way and the family try to come to terms with this enormous loss.”
