(CNN) -- A man charged in the alleged hit-and-run death of a 4-year-old girl at a Florida day care center will remain in jail at least until a Monday hearing about bail, a judge in Orlando ruled Friday.

The judge initially set bail for Robert Alex Corchado at $100,000, but prosecutors asked that it be revoked. At a hearing Friday, the judge gave the state until Monday to file a request that Corchado be detained until his trial.

Authorities allege Corchado, 28, was behind the wheel of an SUV that hit a car, sending the car into a Winter Park day care center and killing Lily Quintus, 4, on Wednesday afternoon.

Corchado fled the scene but surrendered to authorities on Thursday, police said.

He was charged with leaving the scene of an accident with a death.
