A judge has declared there is enough evidence to file felony charges against the man charged in the death of a Bayard man who died in an early Friday morning accident outside of Minatare.

Scotts Bluff County Judge Kristen Mickey has bound over the case against 24-year-old Christopher K. Perry to District Court.

Perry is charged with Motor Vehicle Homicide, after Arlyn Kreman of Bayard was struck and killed by a vehicle driven by Perry last week. 

During today's preliminary hearing, Troopers from the Nebraska State Patrol testified about what they saw when they arrived on the scene of the accident on Highway 26, just east of Minatare.

Troopers say that Perry had a district odor of alcohol on him, blood shot eyes, and was slurring his words. They also said there was a half-empty bottle of UV Cake Vodka, 6 empty beer cans, and 2 empty bottles of wine in his vehicle at the time of his crash.

Perry will make his first appearance in Scotts Bluff County District Court on October 4th. If convicted, Perry could face up to 20 years in prison.
