RICHLAND, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Raymond Watts of Richland will go to trial on December 10 for an accident six months ago that killed a child.

Ten year old Allen Lutrick died as the result of the injuries he sustained in the November 1 accident. Watts is charged with leaving the scene of an accident, and culpable negligence manslaughter.

Police say the school bus had stopped for Lutrick with its stop sign out and lights flashing. As Lutrick began to cross the road, Watts' car hit him, then kept traveling West on Cleary Road toward Byram. Watts turned himself in the next day. The 82 year old was indicted on Thursday.

The District Attorney's office says Watts waived his arraignment.
