Driver in fatal Killearn crash was high on drugs

A woman was high on meth and other drugs when she commandeered her SUV after a fight with her boyfriend and ran over him on Killarney Way, crushing his head, according to court records.

Nikoleta Koikos, 36, was arrested Monday on charges of vehicular homicide and DUI manslaughter in the death of Gary Diskerud Jr., 34. The Tallahassee Police Department obtained an arrest warrant on Thursday after consulting with the State Attorney’s Office. Koikos turned herself in at the Leon County Detention Facility.

Her arrest came nearly four months after the crash, which happened early the morning of Jan. 12 near the roundabout in Killearn Estates. The crash investigation that day shut down neighborhood streets. But the case remained cloaked in secrecy because of TPD’s interpretation of Marsy’s Law, a constitutional amendment that grants crime victims and their families the right to keep identifying information about them private.
