SALISBURY, Md. (AP) - A man facing a homicide by motor vehicle charge in connection with the death of a jogger has died in custody.

Lt. Tim Robinson of the Wicomico County Department of Corrections says 44-year-old Brent Morgan Taylor died Wednesday of lung cancer. He had been hospitalized for more than a week.

Taylor was charged on April 8 in an Oct. 16 incident where 37-year-old Robert T. Schultheis was struck by a truck while jogging near Fruitland. Investigators say Taylor was driving the truck that struck Schultheis, who later died from his injuries.

According to court documents, Taylor told police he was on an antibiotic and methadone while driving.

During a bond review last month, Taylor’s lawyer, David Moore, asked the court to keep his client out of jail so he could continue treatment for lung cancer.
