Man pleads innocent to vehicular homicide in sibling’s death
RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) — A Rapid City man has pleaded not guilty to vehicular homicide in the death of his brother.
Prosecutors say 34-year-old Larry Walking was drinking alcohol in a parked vehicle with his brother Paul and another passenger in Rapid City last month.
Police say Larry Walking put the vehicle in reverse after his brother got out and ran over him, then put the vehicle in drive and ran over him again.
Authorities say Larry Walking had a blood alcohol content of 0.27, more than three times the legal limit to drive.
Judge Jane Wipf Pfeifle on Thursday denied a defense request to reduce Walking’s $10,000 cash only bond, the Rapid City Journal reported.
Walking also pleaded not guilty to two drunken driving charges in the alternative, which means he could be convicted of one or neither of them, but not both.
