Sentencing Monday in fatal 2006 accident

Quinlan – Sentencing is scheduled today in a fatal accident from 2006 that killed three.

Eddie Dale Malone, of Quinlan, is charged with criminally negligent homicide in connection to the accident, which resulted in the deaths of three elderly Wills Point residents.

Malone entered open pleas of no contest earlier this year. He is facing a maximum sentence upon conviction of from 180 days to two years in a state jail and an optional fine of up to $10,000 on each of the three felony counts.

Witnesses claim Malone was driving erratically and weaving along Highway 276 and hit another vehicle head on.
