(AP) — Police say the suspect in the hit - and - run death of a Tennessee officer is in custody . The Chattanooga Police Department announced on Twitter that Janet Elaine Hinds turned herself in Monday morning, hours after the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation put her on its Top Ten Most Wanted list.

News outlets report a police affidavit said Hinds was speeding, crossed a double-yellow line and hit a sign warning of an exposed manhole cover before hitting Galinger. She then drove away from the scene, police said.

Court records show she faces several other charges including reckless driving, leaving the scene of an accident and violation of a traffic control device.

In a court appearance Monday, prosecutors argued for a high bond but Hinds' attorney, Ben McGowan, said that she has strong ties to the community, raised her family there and is the Soddy-Daisy postmaster. The judge set bond at $300,000.

Galinger graduated from the police academy last month and was struck while on a call with his field training officer.

Police recovered a Honda CR-V from Hinds' residence on Sunday. The vehicle had front-end damage.

Chattanooga Police Chief David Roddy said the community "lost not just an officer. We lost a son, a father, a friend, and a protector."

Deputies found the victims inside a home in Terrytown just after 7 a.m. At a news conference later Wednesday, Sheriff Joe Lopinto said the suspect confessed to the crimes and would likely face at least several counts of first-degree murder. Lopinto would not release any details about the suspect's relationship to the victims. He also refused to release the suspect's name or those of the victims but did say the deceased children ranged in age from 8 to 14.
