A Zanesville man makes a court appearance in connection with the death of a motorcyclist.

Wednesday, in front of Judge Jay Vinsel, 72-year-old John Craven plead not guilty to charges of vehicular homicide and failure to yield the right of way.

South Zanesville Police reported that Craven was driving his truck when he collided with a motorcycle driven by 48-year-old Dwight Reynolds, in June.

Reynolds was taking part in a funeral  procession on the Maysville Pike.

He was taken by Medflight to Genesis Good Samaritan where he died of his injuries.

A trial date has been set for September 28.

Craven faces up to 90 days in jail for vehicular homicide charge as well as a fine. He also faces a fine for the failure to yield charge.
