WORCESTER, Mass.—An Ecuadorean man charged with dragging a motorcyclist to his death with his pickup truck in Milford last summer has been ordered held without bail.
Nicolas Guaman pleaded not guilty on Tuesday in Worcester Superior Court to a variety of charges including second-degree murder, manslaughter by motor vehicle and motor vehicle homicide while driving negligently and under the influence of alcohol.
Authorities say Guaman is an illegal immigrant who was behind the wheel of a pickup truck on Aug. 20 that struck a motorcycle driven by 23-year-old Matthew Denice. Police allege Guaman did not stop, but drove a quarter of a mile with Denice stuck in the truck's wheel well, even as witnesses banged on the vehicle begging him to pull over.
Guaman's court-appointed attorney had no comment.
