SIKESTON, Mo. (AP) - A judge has denied a bond reduction for a 27-year-old southeast Missouri woman accused of deliberately running down a man with her car.

Savannah R. Davis is charged with second-degree murder and armed criminal action in the July 11 death of 57-year-old John Sharber of Sikeston.

The Southeast Missourian reports (https://bit.ly/1lKmP3v ) Davis is accused of running over Sharber in a parking lot in Sikeston, then putting him in her car and driving around for three hours before dropping him off in a hospital parking lot. He died later at a St. Louis hospital.

A New Madrid County judge set bond for Davis at $100,000 cash only.

On Thursday, Davis’ attorney requested a bond reduction, which was denied.

The case is set for preliminary hearing Sept. 4.
