Bail set in tow-truck driver’s death
GILLETTE — A judge has set bail at $150,000 for a Gillette man charged with driving a pickup that struck and killed a tow-truck operator.
28-year-old Justin Lynn Helsper of Gillette appeared in court Tuesday.
He faces a felony charge of aggravated vehicular homicide and misdemeanor charges of driving under the influence, speeding and failure to maintain a single lane of travel.
He pleaded not guilty to the misdemeanors but cannot enter a plea to the felony until another stage of the court case.
Another hearing is scheduled for Nov. 30.
The Wyoming Highway Patrol says 65-year-old Larry G. Schofield of Gillette was struck and killed on Interstate 90 Sunday.
He was outside his tow truck recovering another vehicle damaged in a collision with a deer.
