Daniel Bark Charged with Vehicular Homicide, Other Crimes in Alexis Cohen Death

by at . Comments

Daniel Bark, the man arrested for the hit-and-run death of American Idol contestant Alexis Cohen, has been charged with death by vehicular homicide.

The 23-year-old, who was booked yesterday for reckless driving and leaving the scene of an accident, was also charged with aggravated manslaughter.

And eluding a law enforcement officer for good measure.

Alexis Cohen was killed on the road in Seaside Heights, N.J., on the state's famed shore, over the weekend. Her body was found by two pedestrians.

Bail for Daniel Bark has been set at $150,000.

Police say Alexis Cohen was run over by Daniel Bark.

Speaking outside the courthouse afterwards, the suspect's attorney, David Glassman, said Bark is "having an extremely difficult time mentally coming to terms with the fact that there's an allegation that he caused a death."

American Idol might remember Alexis Cohen's angry yet empowered, partially censored, post-rejection rant aired during the show's seventh season.

Last year, she unsuccessfully auditioned for season eight.

Is he having a hard time with the ALLEGATIONS that he caused a death or the fact that he CAUSED the death? One would hope the latter.
