NEW ORLEANS - A "career criminal" allegedly involved in the cover up of a fatal hit and run of a police officer had his bond set at $100,000 on Wednesday morning.

Kenneth Halley, 28, has seven felony convictions and is on parole until 2014, according to his arrest register.

His bond was set at $75,000 for accessory after the fact to manslaughter and $25,000 for obstruction of justice.

On Sunday morning, Officer Rodney Thomas was allegedly struck and killed by Justin McKey's vehicle, according to the New Orleans Police Department.

Halley and the owner of a body shop in which the car involved in the hit and run was stored were both arrested in association with the cover up of the hit and run.
