Manslaughter charge in Hockessin bicyclist's death

Delaware On-line -- Gabriel F. Pardo, the DuPont Co. manager who police said killed a Hockessin bicyclist in September and fled the scene, now faces manslaughter and child endangerment charges.

The indictment recently handed down by a New Castle County grand jury is the first public disclosure that the 44-year-old Pardo had his children in the car when his black Audi sedan struck Phillip Bishop on Brackenville Road about 8:45 p.m. on Sept. 12.

The indictment doesn't say how many children were in the car, but Pardo's attorney Joseph A. Hurley said his client's three sons, whose ages are about 5 to 10, were inside his car.

Pardon's sons knew "either by sight or sound'' that their father had killed Bishop, and "failed to immediately stop and render aid.''

Hurley also said Prado had been drinking "earlier in the day'' but there were no indications he was intoxicated when his sons' mother met him at the Hockessin Acme to exchange the children. [Full story ...]
