DETROIT (AP) - A 47-year-old man has been charged in the hit-and-run death of an 8-year-old boy whose bike was dragged by an SUV in Detroit.

Wayne County prosecutors say Alfonso Butler of Detroit is scheduled to be arraigned Friday on a charge of leaving the scene of an injury accident causing death.

Butler was in custody Thursday. Prosecutor's office spokeswoman Maria Miller says she didn't know if he had an attorney.

Police say Butler turned himself in to authorities Wednesday and acknowledged his involvement in the incident.

Darrin Wilhite of Detroit was struck Tuesday evening on the city's west side by a vehicle that kept going with him and bike pinned underneath. He was dislodged, but the driver drove off with part of the bike stuck to the vehicle's front end.
