TOPEKA, Kansas (AP) – A January preliminary hearing is scheduled for a Chanute man accused in the traffic death of a Topeka bicyclist.
The Topeka Capital-Journal reports that Glenda Taylor died after she was hit by a car while riding her bicycle in Crawford County in June. Taylor, the head of the Washburn University art department, was participating in an amateur time trial when she was hit.
Todd M. Kidwell is charged with second-degree reckless murder in her death. He’s also charged with reckless driving, improper passing of a bicycle and driving left in a no-passing zone.
He’s scheduled to appear in Crawford County court on Jan. 21 for the preliminary hearing. Attorneys sought the postponement of the original preliminary hearing date of Oct. 26.
