Bond was denied again Friday for a Hephzibah man facing a charge of vehicular homicide in the death of a bicyclist.
Christopher Provost, 35, faces an additional charge of leaving the scene of an accident in the death of Dennis Skillman, 42, the morning of May 15. Skillman was riding his bike on the correct side of Mike Padgett Highway and wearing a reflective vest when he was struck by a hit-and-run driver.
Provost told sheriff deputies when they searched his paint and body shop about 10 hours after Skillman’s death that he thought he had hit a deer. Provost was in the middle of repairing the damage to his Dodge Ram 1500 truck when he was arrested.
