Marcus Strong, 34, formerly of Chuckey Pike, was sentenced today to an effective prison term of 20 years at 30 percent release eligibility after pleading guilty in Greene County Criminal Court to aggravated vehicular homicide and drug charges filed while he was an inmate in the county jail.

The repeat driving-under-the-influence offender was sentenced by Judge John F. Dugger Jr.

Strong was the driver in a crash on July 19, 2012, that killed passenger Kiley Ricker Shelton. The car he was driving slammed into a utility pole on Chuckey Pike, ejecting Shelton.

Strong’s trial was scheduled for Jan. 27. He decided to enter guilty pleas to the charges this week, prosecutor Cecil Mills Jr. said.

Strong had no comment at sentencing. Shelton’s mother was not present in court but signed off on the plea agreement, Mills said.
