A request for a lower bond amount in the case of a man accused in the hit-and-run death of a 12-year-old Wooster boy was denied in Faulkner County Court Thursday by Judge David Reynolds.

Michael Fowler, 27, of Springfield, faces two misdemeanors and two felonies, including negligent homicide, for the death of Garrett Martin, who was struck by a vehicle while driving an ATV on a roadway in August.

Twentieth Judicial District Prosecuting Attorney Cody Hiland said the judge not only denied the request to lower Fowler’s $250,000 bond, but added GPS and alcohol monitors should he be released.
