Probation recommended in crash death

WACO, TX - A 54th District Court jury has recommended probation for  Ayden McKenna in the drunk driving death of the passenger riding with him when he crashed his Scion Sport in October of 2015.

The actual recommendation read ten years in prison probated to ten years with a $10,000 fine.

However, the sentence won't be final until some time in June after the judge ordered a pre-sentence investigation.

McKenna had earlier this week entered the guilty plea after being charged with intoxication manslaughter in the death of 31 year old Jason Carl Sorley of Clifton.

Investigators say that McKenna had been driving the 2013 Scion Sport at a high rate of speed going west on Wortham Bend Road when he lost control of the vehicle in a curve , went sideways, then airborne at the intersection with China Spring Highway coming to rest in a parking lot.

McKenna was restrained by his seat belt and was found in the vehicle while Sorley was ejected and was found lying on the ground.

McKenna himself was seriously injured and had a long stay in the hospital.

As the investigation went on a warrant was issued for his arrest and he turned himself in.
