The driver who caused a fatal car accident in July 2011 was sentenced to five years probation, and six months of jail time.
Tyler Durant Stewart, 30, of Baltimore, was sentenced Wednesday in Anne Arundel County Circuit Court by Judge Paul Hackner. In October, Stewart pleaded guilty to negligent manslaughter.
Hackner sentenced Stewart to six months in prison, and five years on house arrest, with recommended work release after his prison sentence has been fulfilled, according to online court records.
On July 5, 2011, at 11 p.m., Stewart was traveling at least 61 mph when he sped through a red light at the intersection of College Parkway and Ritchie Highway, according to online court records.
He struck the passenger side of a 2004 Audi driven by Jack Feick, 71, of Arnold. Lois Feick, the passenger, later died of her injuries at Anne Arundel Medical Center. Jack Feick suffered serious injuries and was hospitalized.
Jack Feick declined comment when contacted by Patch, citing pending litigation against Stewart.
