The Wilkes County couple wanted for the death of a teen-aged moped rider have been found and charged with the fatal accident.

Wilkesboro Police were given information about the possible whereabouts of Patricia and Billy Mash Monday afternoon, and joined by Wilkes Deputies, went to a McGrady location searching for the pair.  The owner gave permission to search the trailer for the pair, but no one was there.  Speaking again to the owner, a dog barked and ran excitedly around the trailer to some bushes, where he was wagging his tail as if familiar with someone there.  The lawmen walked up the embankment and found Patricia Mash lying behind the bushes, and they placed her under arrest.  The 50-year old was charged with Manslaughter by Negligence, Hit and Run, and Assault with a Deadly weapon, charges stemming from the September 10th hit-and-run from late that night, an incident in which 17-year old Victor Manual Rogue was struck and killed.  Patricia Mash was taken to the magistrate’s office, set at $75,000 bond, and while there, a call came in from her husband, Billy Wade Mash, reporting that he was in the Miller’s Creek area and wanted to turn himself in.  The 43-year old was picked up and taken to the magistrate’s office, charged with Accessory After the Fact to the Hit & Run, Traffic offense and a Failure to Appear count—his bond set at $26,500.
