A Philadelphia teen is now charged with the murder of a woman outside Citizens Bank Ballpark.

Philadelphia District Attorney announced the charge today against 18-year-old Joseph Genovese. He is also charged with homicide by vehicle, related to the death of Cindy Grassi.

Police say he ran down Grassi and a friend, Sandra Wacker, both of Missouri, outside the ballpark last week. They had just left a game between the Phillies and their beloved St. Louis Cardinals. Wacker remains hospitalized in critical condition.

Genovese was orginally charged with driving under the influence, before the charges were upgraded today. He was arrested and is in jail.
