BALTIMORE (WJZ) — The Episcopal Diocese of Maryland announces a replacement for the bishop charged in the DUI crash that killed a Baltimore cyclist.

The diocese tells our media partner, The Baltimore Sun, the Right Reverend Chilton R. Knudsen, a former bishop of Maine, will replace Heather Cook as assistant bishop.

Knudsen is a recovered alcoholic who counsels those struggling with addiction.

Cook was defrocked earlier this month. Her trial is set for June 4.
