CINCINNATI — Bond has been increased to $1 million for a woman jailed in a hit-and-run accident that led to the death of a longtime Cincinnati Elder High School teacher.

Twenty-three-year-old Kayla Wilson entered a not guilty plea Friday to charges of aggravated vehicular assault and failing to stop after an accident.

Her bond was raised from $750,000, with a court hearing set for Jan. 9 in Hamilton County. A message was left Friday for her attorney.

Seventy-four-year-old Mark Klusman died Dec. 26 from injuries. He was hit Dec. 9 while helping with other volunteers cleaning up leaves and debris along a road.

Klusman was a 1961 graduate of Elder High. He was teaching computer science in his 51st year as a teacher at the all-male Catholic school.
