A White Pigeon man, accused of hiding a woman’s body after she was struck by a vehicle he was driving, was arraigned Thursday.
Authorities said 29-year-old Colby Martin was driving a car that struck Decatur-area resident Melody Rohrer, age 64, Monday in Van Buren County’s Hamilton Township.
Martin is charged with manslaughter with a motor vehicle, failure to stop at the scene of an accident and concealment of death.
Investigators said Martin took Rohrer’s body to a wooded area in St. Joseph County.
During Thursday’s proceedings, Judge Michael McKay set Martin’s bond at $300,000.
Martin, who faces up to 35 years in prison, will next appear in court Oct. 6.
