A contractor on Staten Island has been indicted for the hit-and-run killings of an elderly couple outside a church last Thanksgiving eve.

Prosecutors say Allmir Lekperic was speeding when he hit the couple in front of Our Lady Queen of Peace Church.

His lawyer says Lekperic had the green light.

He claims the victims, who were carrying canned goods for charity, were outside the crosswalk when they were struck and killed.
