Authorities in south-central Iowa have charged a man in connection with the hit and run death of a bicyclist. The Warren County Sheriff’s office says 80-year-old Paul “Jud” McKinney turned himself in this morning. The Winterset man is charged with leaving the scene of a fatality, concealment of evidence and failure to maintain control.
The charges stem from a pickup versus bicycle collision on a rural Warren County road on August 30. The bicyclist, 54-year-old Mark Grgurich of Des Moines, died at the scene. McKinney’s attorney asked that his client be released because of his age and poor health, but a judge ordered McKinney be taken into custody and set bond at $10,000.
His arraignment is set for September 22.
