LISBON, Ohio (News Talk 1480 WHBC) – A Columbiana County man accused of driving drunk and killing an Alliance-area woman has entered a guilty plea and will be sentenced later.
21-year-old Joseph Matz of Homeworth pleaded guilty to aggravated vehicular homicide last week.
He’s expected to get seven to ten years prison time in March.
41-year-old Jennifer Moreland was inside her Knox School Road home in Knox Township back in January when prosecutors say Matz drove off the road and into the house.
Her 41-year-old husband Joshua was injured.
Their two children were in the house, but were not injured.
Matz reportedly had alcohol and marijuana in his system at the time.
