Charges have been upgraded against a northwest Indiana man suspected in a deadly hit and run crash.

Police say Ricardo Bustos was drunk when he drove into a highway construction worker last Friday on Interstate 94. Roger Sadler died on Sunday from injuries he suffered in the crash.

On Tuesday, a judge denied Bustos' request to be released from jail to take college final exams.

Some of the charges against Bustos were changed to higher-level felonies with longer prison penalties because of Sadler's death.
