The sentencing hearing for a man who pleaded guilty to misdemeanor counts of negligent homicide and driving under the influence in the March 2010 vehicle crash that killed a Hagerstown woman was continued Tuesday until Dec. 10 in Berkeley County Circuit Court. Jeffrey Wayne McKinney, 39, is to be placed on home confinement for 18 months as part of a binding plea agreement, attorneys have said. McKinney, formerly of Berkeley County, was indicted on single counts of driving under the influence causing death and failure to yield in a March 18, 2010, crash that claimed the life of Mary F. Punt, 57. The sentencing hearing was delayed Tuesday after presiding 23rd Judicial Circuit Judge Gray Silver III learned of a problem with McKinney being able to meet the terms and conditions of his home confinement.
