Bail denied in fatal accident

Temas:

Enrique Edwin Jaén Cherigo, the motorist accused of hitting and killing cyclist Mónica Licona on Sept. 20 on Avenida Balboa, was denied bail by 12th Criminal Court Judge Lania Batista.

The judge ruled that the defendant posed a flight risk, the judiciary said in a statement released Monday.

"The evidence collected so far allowed the judge to agree with the position of prosecutors to deny the bail request," read the statement.

Jaén Cherigo has been detained since being arrested Sept. 26 in Santiago, Veraguas.

He was allegedly driving a rental car that hit Licona shortly before 6 a.m. in front of the Miramar hotel. The vehicle was found shortly afterward on Avenida Mexico, where it had been abandoned.

Jáen Chérigo has apparently confessed to the crime.
