The deadly hit-and-run happened on the night of Nov. 6 in Covington.
Michael Russell, 50, was riding his bike when he was hit and left to die.
"It has just been devastating on our family as well as the community of Maple Valley. Michael grew up out in Maple Valley," said his sister Lena Carr.
Kyle Landry, 31, waited until Friday night to turn himself in to police. He faces a charge of vehicular homicide.
This afternoon Judge Anne Harper ordered Landry held on $200,000 bail.

Landry waived his appearance in court.
But Russell's sister, nieces and a grandnephew were there for the proceedings.
"I'm not real pleased with the outcome of it. I was hoping that they would do a non-bondable because of the way that he left that situation," said Carr.
Court documents say Landry concealed his car under a blanket at his parent's house for two days before letting his parents call police about the hit-and-run.
"I just think he needs to stay in and let his parents visit him through glass because we're unable to spend our holidays with my brother," Carr said.
The family has suffered tragedy before. Lena said her mother, who was also Russell's mother, was murdered in 1987.
But, she said, Russell, persevered through it.
