Bail set at $25k for Keene woman charged in friend’s hit-and-run death

KEENE — The woman accused of being the driver who caused a fatal hit-and-run crash that killed a cyclist on Route 101 on Nov. 2 will go on trial in May.

Tracy A. Burroughs, 41, of Keene, was indicted on charges of negligent homicide, conduct after an accident and two counts of aggravated driving while intoxicated by the Cheshire County Superior Court Grand Jury on Jan. 31.

Burroughs filed a plea of not guilty Jan. 31.

On Monday, Superior Court Judge John Kissinger set her bail at $25,000 cash.

She continues to be held at the Cheshire County House of Corrections. Her trial is scheduled to start May 24.

Burroughs is accused of being behind the wheel of the vehicle that hit and killed cyclist Keon E. Ioannou, 48, of Keene, around 1:50 a.m. on Nov. 2. She was arrested later that morning at the home she shared with Ioannou.

Ioannou was the chef and owner of Tony Clamato’s Ristorante on Court Street. Burroughs worked for Ioannou as a waitress.

He was riding his bicycle home when the hit and run took place. According to the indictment, he suffered traumatic blunt force trauma, including a broken leg, a skull fracture and damage to his brain.

Ioannou and Burroughs shared a home at 878 Marlboro Road. They had been in a relationship in the past, but according to friends of Ioannou, the pair had just been friends for some time.

An indictment is not a ruling of guilt, but a determination by the grand jury that prosecutors have enough evidence to move forward with a trial.
