Bond reduced in vehicular homicide case

— A Routt County judge reduced bond in the case of a man facing vehicular homicide charges from $10,000 to $5,000 during a hearing Wednesday.

Yampa resident Howard Scott Williamson was arrested in September on suspicion of criminally negligent homicide, failing to remain at the scene of an accident, careless driving resulting in death, failing to remain at the scene of an accident and failing to report an accident. The charges stemmed from a Sept. 16 accident that killed Mexican sheepherder Quirino Valentin Aguilar.

Garrecht told Williamson he would not be allowed to consume alcohol or drive as a condition of his bond.

Williamson is scheduled to next appear in court at 1 p.m. Oct. 17.
