Covington police won't know for days, possibly weeks, what additional charges they might file against a man suspected of killing a boy Friday evening. Christopher Wells, 45, pleaded not guilty Monday to leaving the scene of a fatal traffic collision. The charge is a felony in the state of Kentucky. A judge set his bond at $10,000. According to the Covington Police Department, Wells drove away after hitting 6-year-old Eli Kindt as the boy rode his bicycle along on E. 32nd Street. Lt. Col. Brian Steffen said crash investigators are still working to piece together what, exactly, happened. Then police have to wait for toxicology reports from Kentucky State Police, Steffen said. That could take up to 90 days.
