      A nurse accused of hitting and killing a U.S. Navy chief petty officer with his car after a dispute at a Virginia Beach bar in July was indicted this month on new charges. Joshua Ceruti Robinson was initially charged with malicious wounding, which carries a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison, after police said he hit 40-year-old Stephen “Tyler” Murphy with his car. A grand jury indicted him on one count each of involuntary manslaughter and hit-and-run, which both carry maximum sentences of 10 years, according to Macie Allen, a spokesperson for the Virginia Beach commonwealth’s attorney.
