Guilty Plea In Double Death: Should Bond Be Revoked?

By: Stephanie Shoop

Do you think someone who has pleaded guilty to two counts of second degree murder and one count of driving while impaired should be free on bond?

Here's the case:

A Hertford county man pleaded guilty Monday in the deaths of an engaged couple in a drunk driving accident.

Tyron Daly, 42,  from Ahoskie was in court in Martin County. He pleaded guilty to two counts of second degree murder and one count of driving while impaired.

Daniel Wiggins and Christine McGinty of Martin County were killed in the November 2005 accident on Highway 125 near Hamilton.

Daly had a prior record of involuntary manslaughter and a DWI conviction in 1990. He faces 34 years in prison. Daly remains out on bond until his sentencing Tuesday.

    How many times should the gun be loaded for this person? Just because you are irresponsible with alcohol and kill someone (twice!) does not mean you should be out on bail because it wasn't a loaded gun. There are no degrees of death -- there should be no degree to the penalty when you cause someone's death. This is no accident -- it was irresponsible behavior that resulted in death.

    Posted by: J Location: NC - I think you misunderstood what Joyce said because she does not think he should be out. Now, no way should he be out waiting sentence. Did this couple get time to hang out while waiting their death sentence? Let's see, he had prior convictions so where is out justice system? This is a total disgrace that you can plead guilty to something like this, but be out doing what ever you feel like until your sentence is handed down. Let's get real NC JUSTICE SYSTEM!!!!

    Joyce, I'm sorry but I have to disagree with you, this was no mistake. HE WAS DRUNK. If someone is going to make the decision to drink and drive, that is their decision and they know the consequences and what can happen. I hate alcohol and I hate drugs, especially. DEFINITELY THIS GUY SHOULD NOT BE OUT ON BOND, HE SHOULD REMAIN IN JAIL UNTIL HIS COURT DATE.

    Definitely not. Is he willing to give up drinking and driving? Yes it was an accident, but one that could have been prevented if he had not been driving while impaired.

    no he should never be out, the people he killed never will have another chance to see their loves ones again, so why should he. Thye need to get new people on our so call justice system. this one is broke.But at the ensd of his life, we all will stand before JESUS and give an account of our live4s here on this earth.

    I do not believe that he should be out on bond. He should of never been able to drive again after the 1990 incident, which I certainly hope he spent substanital time in prison for.
