LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A Kentucky man has pleaded not guilty to murder, drunken driving and other charges after police say he hit and killed a cyclist participating in a triathlon.
Jefferson County Attorney spokesman Bill Patteson says 25-year-old Kenneth Yates entered the plea Monday.
Police say Yates hit 47-year-old John Carr, who was bicycling in
Louisville on Saturday as part of a triathlon at a state park.
Police say Yates continued to drive but was stopped by an off-duty officer at a nearby intersection. Police say Yates resisted arrest and ran away, but his mother brought him back to the scene.
Patteson says Yates asked for a public defender at Monday's hearing and the judge set bond at $250,000.
