MITCHELL, S.D. (AP) - A Davison County judge has denied a request to release from custody a Mitchell woman accused of trying to kill her boyfriend with a vehicle.

The Daily Republic (https://bit.ly/25ziOdQ ) reports Judge Tim Bjorkman on Tuesday denied the requests for bond reduction and release on furlough filed by the attorney of 38-year-old Roberta Woodside.

Authorities allege Woodside hit 40-year-old Joseph Vasquez in a field on Feb. 24, turned the vehicle around and hit him a second time, then drove over him before leaving the scene. The man suffered broken bones.

Woodside has pleaded not guilty to aggravated assault and attempted murder. Her attorney, Doug Dailey, argued that a furlough or bond reduction would allow Woodside to see her juvenile child.

Bjorkman denied the requests arguing that Woodside poses a flight risk.
