SALISBURY, Md.- An Eden man facing homicide by motor vehicle and related charges in connection with the death of a well-known Salisbury University alum has died in custody.

The Wicomico County Department of Corrections said 44-year-old Brent Morgan Taylor died as a result of a medical condition. Officials said he had been hospitalized for more than a week before succumbing to his health issues. 

During a bond review last month, Taylor's lawyer, David Moore, asked the court to keep his client out of jail so he could continue treatment for lung cancer. 

Taylor was arrested last month and charged with homicide by motor vehicle and DWI in connection with the Oct. 16 death of 37-year-old Robert T. Schultheis. Investigators said Schultheis was jogging on the 3000 block of Meadow Bridge Road near Fruitland when he was struck by a Ford pickup truck driven by Taylor.  

Taylor was said to have had drugs in his system when he struck Schultheis with his truck.
