COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa (AP) - A Council Bluffs educator and cheerleader coach has been ordered to stand trial in the September traffic death of a bicyclist.

The Daily Nonpareil reports (https://bit.ly/1Mi0Xc3 ) that an attorney for 28-year-old Stephanie Kenealy said Thursday she will plead not guilty to a charge of leaving the scene of a fatal crash. The attorney, Thomas Anderson of Omaha, Nebraska, says he’ll enter her written plea around Kenealy’s Nov. 2 arraignment date. Trial has been set for Dec. 15.

Authorities say 54-year-old David Ryder was riding his bike in the same direction as Kenealy’s SUV when she hit the bicyclist during a heavy downpour. Ryder, who was not wearing a helmet, was declared dead at the scene.

Authorities say Kenealy left the scene and returned nearly an hour later.
