Syracuse (WSYR-TV) - A North Syracuse man charged with vehicular homicide in connection with a deadly drunk-driving crash will have another month to decide whether to take a plea bargain in the case.
Harry McLeod, 59, returned to Onondaga County Court on Wednesday morning.
He is accused of driving drunk last October along Route 11 near a Delta Sonic location in the town of Salina.
According to police, McLeod’s car hit another vehicle driven by Edward Warner, who died four days later from his injuries. When Warner died, the charges against McLeod escalated.
Investigators say McLeod was driving without his headlights on when the victim made a left-hand turn in front of McLeod’s car.
If convicted, McLeod could face 25 years to life in prison.
