HAVERHILL, N.H. (AP) - A judge has denied bail for a New Hampshire man for a man accused of causing a crash that killed a pregnant Vermont woman and her fiance in December 2013.

Fifty-four-year-old Robert Dellinger of Sunapee is charged with second-degree murder in the deaths of 24-year-old Amanda Murphy and 29-year-old Jason Timmons of Wilder, Vermont, and with second-degree assault in the death of the fetus. He has pleaded not guilty.

Dellinger’s lawyers argued earlier this month that he should be released on bail while awaiting trial, but the Valley News reports (http://bit.ly/1xHANgV) that a judge recently denied the request.

Police have said Dellinger, a former Fortune 500 executive, was despondent and trying to kill himself when his pickup truck collided head-on with the couple’s SUV on Interstate 89.
