A Columbia woman charged with involuntary manslaughter and DWI for the November death of a motorcyclist on North Providence will go to trial in June.

Boone County Judge Joshua Calvin Devine has scheduled a three-day jury trial starting June 7, and he’s denied a bond reduction request from 72-year-old Susan Hanel. She remains jailed this morning.

Columbia Police investigators say Hanel was northbound on Providence on November 30, when she entered the center turn lane at East Sexton and failed to yield when making a left turn. Police say 25-year-old Skylar Maddox was unable to avoid her vehicle and collided with the rear passenger side. He was ejected and was pronounced dead at a Columbia hospital.

Maddox worked at Gilbane Motorsports on Nebraska Avenue, which helped raise money for Maddox’s funeral arrangements.
