Guilty Plea In Deadly D.U.I. Crash

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

Tyron Daly, 42 years-old, of Ahoskie was in court in Martin County where 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.

    this is very tragic,as there are many more victims than mentioned. we live in a society that murderers,rapists,child molesters get no more than a slap on the wrists for a plea deal. i will never understand the murder 2 charges for an unfortunate act of being irresponsible AND A POOR JUDGEMENT CALL ON BEHALF OF MR. DALY. I DO KNOW THAT HE IS A GOOD MAN. A spouse, two innocent children and a mother will pay greatly for this tragic situation. i will continue to pray for all those involved in this unfortunate situation as time will not heal for any of the families.

    i am appauled at the idea that O.J. thinks he has the rights to items that were taken from hie possession. if he felt he had those rights, why take the law intoy our own hands? why not just call the police and let them handle it???!!! i feel he will serve some time and i think he feels he will not b/c he got away with murder. i like o.j. but right is right!

    It is a tragedy what has happened to those family's. He should not have been on the road that night. I understand he has received 20 years in prison for his wrong doing. This is also a tragedy for his wife and children and family. How many family's has to be destroyed by alcohol. Not only the victims but his children as well. My prayer goes to him, his family and the victim's family as well.

    This is another tragic event caused by a person who gets behind the wheel after drinking. How many families have been changed forever, in the blink of an eye? The ripple effect goes on forever...parents lose a child...children lose their father, spouses lose their loved one...all because of alcohol? What can we do from this point? NEVER drive or let someone drive while drinking. NEVER, under any circumstances is it the right thing to do to put someone's life at risk. Pray for all the families involved...for their lives will never be the same again.

    This man was convicted in 1990 with involuntary manslaughter and DWI conviction! what business did he have behind the wheel. I look at this story like looking at a gun story. It's not just the gun you use to kill or shoot someone, it's what goes with it...THE BULLETS! So this man had no business driving. especially after drinking...drinking and driving don't go together.
