KINGMAN - A Meadview man has been arrested in connection with the death of a motorcyclist. Mohave County Sheriff's detectives arrested Robert Felix Golden, Jr., 43, Tuesday afternoon for felony leaving the scene of a fatal collision.

According to the Sheriff's Office, at 9 a.m. March 12, Jerry Allen Jennings, 53, and his wife, Joana, were traveling southbound on a motorcycle along Stockton Hill Road north of Kingman when, according to a witness to the accident, Golden allegedly struck the couple with his white pick-up truck, causing the Jennings to go off the road into a ditch and crash into an embankment.
