Kennett denied bail over hit-and-run
A BALMORAL man charged over a fatal hit-and-run in March has had his bail application refused this week.
Dale Kennett, 53, appeared in the Warrnambool Magistrates Court by videolink on Monday, charged with dangerous driving causing death, failing to stop and failing to render assistance over the death of a 48-year-old Hamilton man.
Mr Kennett had pleaded not guilty to the charges but was refused bail and remanded in custody until his committal hearing in October.
He had already spent more than four months in custody since his arrest.
Emergency services were unable to save the victim after he was allegedly hit by a vehicle in Hamilton’s Henry Court about 3am on March 10.
