A bond hearing was delayed Friday for the man who authorities say crashed his SUV into a car, pushing it into a Florida daycare center and killing a young girl, documents show.
Robert Corchado, 28, will be held in the Orange County Jail — on a charge of leaving the scene of an accident with death — until Monday, a judge decided Friday by not setting bond, jail documents show.
Corchado's bond was originally set at $100,000, but a prosecutor argued Corchado is a flight risk, NBC affiliate WESH reported. The judge said he would make a decision regarding Corchado's bond on Monday.
Corchado’s criminal record is littered with drug charges and a separate misdemeanor charge of leaving the scene of a crash that involved property damage. Cindy Williams, a spokeswoman for Florida Highway Patrol, said Corchado also has ties to the Latin Kings gang.
Officials said a 4-year-old girl, identified by police as Lily Quintus, died at Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children after the car was catapulted into a KinderCare. Twelve children and one adult were hospitalized following the crash.
