Houston-Area Nurse Charged in Bicyclist Death



    A Houston-area nurse has been charged in a hit-and-run traffic accident that left a bicyclist dead.

    Galveston County jail records show 49-year-old Dena Lynn McKenzie of League City was being held Thursday on a charge of accident involving death. Online jail records do not list an attorney for McKenzie, who was arrested Wednesday and bond set at $25,000.

    League City police say 45-year-old Kevin Munson of League City was riding his bicycle in a roadway before dawn on March 14 when he was struck by a vehicle and later died.

    McKenzie was located after police released surveillance video from a nearby gated community that shows a woman removing a loose part from her car.

    Tips led to the nurse.
