A 24-year-old suspect in a hit-and-run in Prague this week, which claimed the life a young woman, will remain in custody awaiting trial. The district court for Prague 2 issued the decision on Friday with the judge saying there was a danger the suspect could otherwise influence witnesses. The suspect, who fled the scene without attempting to help the mortally-wounded 21-year-old, gave himself up to the police the same evening. He is charged with gross negligence leading to death, driving under the influence of an illicit drug, and failure to provide emergency assistance; if found guilty, he could spend up to eight years in jail.
