Retired pro Rohan Dennis faced court for the first time today for the charges of causing death by dangerous driving, driving without due care and endangering life in the tragic incident that killed his wife and the mother of his children, Olympian Melissa Hoskins, in December. 

Dennis remained silent as prosecutors requested time to complete a major crash reconstruction, ABC reports. The request was granted with bail extended to seven months, backdated to the December incident. Dennis did not enter a plea, and will reappear before the Adelaide Magistrates Court in Adelaide, Australia, on August 6. If Dennis is convicted, he faces a maximum penalty of 15 years in prison.
