LAS VEGAS, Nev. (FOX5) – A Henderson judge on Wednesday morning ordered a man accused of a deadly DUI crash held on more than a quarter million dollars.

36-year-old Daryll Smith faces three counts of DUI resulting in death, and two counts of reckless driving in connection with the January 9 crash that killed 38-year-old Rebecca Post, and her five and six-year-old sons Leo Post-Quintanilla, and Achilles Quintanilla.

A police report shows Smith told officers he’d had three glasses of wine and some cough syrup before the wreck.

During Wednesday’s hearing, his defense attorney asked for a bail reduction, but the judge denied that request. She pointed to Smith’s driving history, and cited a ticket for driving 100 miles an hour. The judge also declared Smith both a flight risk and a danger to the community. Bail was set at $255,000.

Smith returns to court for a preliminary hearing on April 17.
