Inquirer staff writer Mari A. Schaefer reports: Lemuel Payne, accused in the hit-and-run in August that killed a 16-year-old girl in Delaware County, was held over for trial following a preliminary hearing today in Sharon Hill District Court. Faith Sinclair was crossing the Chester Pike in Sharon Hill on Aug. 3 when she was hit by a black Mercedes allegedly driven by Payne. At the conclusion of this afternoon’s hearing, Sinclair’s distraught brother was carried out of the courtroom by family members.
