BEDFORD — A Norman man arrested in connection with an Aug. 16 fatal wreck in Lawrence County is back in jail.
Lawrence Superior Court I Judge Michael Robbins revoked the bond for Cody Silvers, 20, during an initial hearing Monday morning in Bedford.
That action was taken because Silvers is serving probation on an earlier conviction in Jackson County, officials said. Silvers was released from jail a week ago today after posting a $2,005 surety bond.
Silvers was formally charged Monday with one count of leaving the scene of a personal injury wreck causing death, a Class C felony, and a count of leaving the scene of a personal injury wreck causing serious injury, a Class D felony.
Silvers is accused of leaving the scene of a wreck on Leesville Road that killed Medora High School sophomore Kassi Richel Lewis-Yaskovich, 16, Medora, and injured freshman Noah Brown, 15, Medora.
Silvers asked about when he might be eligible for bond and requested a pauper attorney be assigned to him.
Robbins denied the request for a court-appointed defense attorney and said that Silvers' attorney would have to file a motion requesting that bond be set.
As Silvers was being led away by jailers after the hearing, he could be heard telling his family that he loved them.
A pre-trial hearing has been set for 9 a.m. Sept. 23.
