GEORGETOWN, Ky. (AP) - A judge has sent a case involving a man accused of hitting and killing a Lexington bicyclist to the grand jury after finding probable cause from a preliminary hearing.

The Lexington Herald-Leader reports (http://bit.ly/1GZtZyU ) police revealed new details about the incident while at a Scott County hearing on Tuesday for 29-year-old Odilon Paz-Salvador.

Paz-Salvador was charged with murder following the death of 57-year-old lawyer Mark Hinkel.

Authorities say Hinkel was participating in a cycling event last month when he was struck head-on, landing in the bed of Paz-Salvador’s pickup, where he was driven for three miles.

Georgetown police officer Robert Tackett says he saw blood pouring off the back of the truck and stopped Paz-Salvador.

Hinkel died shortly after at a nearby hospital.

The judge left Paz-Salvador’s bond at $100,000.
