Slain rancher's wife struck by car
DOUGLAS, AZ (KOLD)- Sue Krentz, wife of slain rancher, Robert Krentz, was hit by a vehicle driven by a suspected drunk driver in Douglas Saturday night, Douglas Police said.

It happened at approximately 6 p.m. in front of St. Luke's Catholic Church, an official said. Krentz and her friend were crossing the street when they were struck.

Sue Krentz was airlifted to University Medical Center in Tucson, police said. Her condition is unknown at this time.

Krentz's friend's name and condition were not immediately available.

The driver of the vehicle did not stop, police said. Ramon Parra Saucedo, 74, was located a short time later.

Saucedo is charged with DUI, 2 counts of Endangerment, and 2 counts of Aggravated Assault, said Carol Capas, a Cochise County Sheriff's Department spokeswoman. He is being held in the Cochise County Jail. Bond is set at $5,000.

Saucedo is a U.S. citizen, Capas said.
That's it?  Bond for hitting a human being with a vehicle while driving drunk is $5000?  Doesn't that mean he can get out by posting $500??
