A New York judge has reduced bail for a pickup truck driver who police say slammed into a limousine in Long Island wine country over the weekend, leaving four women dead.
The Suffolk County district attorney's office says Steven Romeo's bail was lowered to $50,000 at a court hearing Thursday, the same day one of the victims, 23-year-old Brittney Schulman, was laid to rest.
Romeo faces a misdemeanor driving while intoxicated charge. He has pleaded not guilty.
DA's spokesman Robert Clifford says Romeo's attorney asked for bail to be reduced from $500,000. Prosecutors did not object.
Romeo has been hospitalized since Saturday. The attorney said he expected to be hospitalized for the foreseeable future.
Prosecutors have said the limousine, carrying eight women, was making a U-turn after leaving a winery when Romeo broadsided them.
His attorney did not immediately return a call seeking comment.
