NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

A man accused of killing a bicyclist who was in New Orleans training for the Ironman Triathlon was indicted by a grand jury Thursday.

Howard Vidrine, 33, faces one count of negligent homicide and one count of negligent injury.

On April 11, Vidrine was allegedly speeding in the 20000 block of Chef Mentuer Highway, when he struck two bicyclists from behind.

Frank Guin, a fireman from Atlanta and father of three young children, was killed. Andrew Powell, Guin's brother-in-law, was seriously injured.

Vidrine was arrested by the New Orleans police Department on April 11 and bonded out of jail Monday. Following Thursday's indictment, Judge Karen Herman set Vidrine's bond at $500,000 on the negligent homicide charge and $100,000 on the negligent injury charge.

Vidrine was taken back into custody Friday morning in Gretna.
