WARWICK – The Charlestown man accused of escaping a New Year’s Day accident that killed a teenage boy in East Greenwich cried on his first court hearing on Tuesday.

Aramis Segura, 30, of 5151 Old Post Rd., Slumped and leaned on a stick as Superior Court Judge Melissa E. Darigan ordered him to be bailed as a suspected probation violation on previous burglary charges and burglary, as well as possession of a stolen automobile, and conspiracy.

Assistant Attorney General John Corrigan moved to detain Segura based on his 2010 “substantial” criminal record, which included charges of shoplifting, stolen goods and third-degree sexual assault, equivalent to legal rape.
