Two weeks after five-year-old Rickyia Langham was struck and killed by a hit-and-run driver, signs urging drivers to slow down have appeared in her neighborhood.

Lechelle Yarbrought's daughter was struck and killed by a hit-and-run driver right in front of her house on Leon Terrace on November 6. 

"It just touched me because I couldn't believe it. Who put them up?" asked Yarbrought. "I asked neighbors and all they could tell me was it was an older guy and he's from Waukesha. So without a name, I've just been calling him my angel from Waukesha."

There are two speed bumps on Leon Terrace, but Yarbrought says there needs to be more.

"I'm going to go around door to door, because you have to get a signature from everyone on your block that they will be okay with speed bumps being put in. Another parent, another grandparent shouldn't have to go through this," she said.

The man police say was the driver was arrested days later. Sherman Liddell waived his preliminary hearing in court Tuesday. The court found probable cause and bound him over for trial.
