    It was a dramatic day in court as a man accused of being behind the wheel in a deadly hit-and-run in Massachusetts last week faced a judge on Monday.

    Thirty-four-year-old Ryan Brady was crying as he was charged with leaving the scene of an accident after causing death in connection to the Braintree crash that killed 62-year-old Irina Hyde, who was crossing the street after leaving her job at a nursing home.

    The courtroom was cleared during Brady's arraignment after the victim's husband, Tony Hyde, cried out that the suspect was a murderer and Hyde's daughter collapsed. 

    Authorities say the grill of Brady's car came off during impact, making it possible for officers to track him down.

    After he left the courtroom, Tony Hyde said he did not find the suspect's tears to be sincere. 

    "That’s all a play for justice to be reduced, and I’m not buying into that," Hyde said. "You want see anguish? Look at my family and my daughter in law. My family’s suffering goes on and on. He may get out in who knows two, two and a half years, and resume his life. My wife’s gone.”

    In court, his attorney said his client was remorseful and has been cooperative.

    After pleading not guilty to the charge, Brady was ordered to be held on $10,000 cash bail.
