RAPID CITY, S.D. — A man accused of killing an infant during a 2018 hit-and-run in Rapid City has pleaded not guilty. George Matousek pleaded not guilty Friday to second-degree manslaughter and hit-and-run with injury in the October 2018 death of 1-year-old Mackayla Dillon.

He also pleaded not guilty to driving under suspension.

Police say Matousek was driving “at an extremely high rate of speed” before hitting two vehicles at a Rapid City intersection, killing the child.

Matousek faces life in prison under the South Dakota’s habitual offender laws.
