The driver accused of killing a young Makaha man as he was walking along Farrington Highway pleaded not guilty in court Monday.

Valentine Keola Mahuiki was charged with negligent homicide, leaving the scene of an accident and driving without a license after hitting 22-year-old Justin Willingham as he walking on the shoulder of Farrington Highway in August 2011.

Willingham died at the scene.

Witnesses say they chased down Mahuiki after he was seen running away from the crash.

The judge today upheld Mahuiki's $50,000.

His trial is scheduled for December.
