A Bend man was formally charged today with hitting and killing a man on a bike last January. Bret Biedscheid, 38, faces negligent homicide and hit and run charges.  Prosecutors say Biedscheid hit Anthony Martin, 48, on January 26th as he walked his bike across Third Street. Martin's sister, Teresa Gibbs of Madras is happy the case is moving forward: “The last four months have been very heavy on my family, heavy hearts. The stress of not knowing who killed him and whether they were going to be arrested or not was heavy on our hearts, also. I’m just happy this wasn't swept under the rug.” Prosecutors say Biedscheid hit Martin with his pick up truck and did not stop to help him. Martin died at the scene.
