Grampian, PA — Authorities said Eric McCall pleaded guilty to homicide by vehicle and other charges in relation to the death of his girlfriend Christina Metzker back in 2019.

This homicide by vehicle case dates back to April 3rd 2019.

Authorities said McCall crashed his car along Old Erie Pike while driving under the influence. The crash claimed the life of Metzker.

His trial was set to start this week but Clearfield County District Attorney Ryan Sayers said McCall took a plea deal Tuesday morning.

"We offered this plea last week to him and the reason is....there are sentencing guidelines there are mandatory minimums certain parameters that we are stuck between on certain crimes and that’s set by the legislature," Sayers explained.

Sayers said McCall pleaded guilty to homicide by vehicle while driving under the influence, driving on a suspended license and fleeing a scene which he said is a minimum of 3.5 years in jail.

"A homicide by vehicle while DUI which was the most serious charge in this case is a mandatory three years incarceration," he said.

MccCall is currently out on unsupervised bail.

"Because he had been doing well and has been clean from alcohol and checking in, the court did not find it necessary to have him remanded to the jail pending sentencing," said Sayers.

McCall’s sentencing is set for June.                                                                                                                                                                                             https://wjactv.com/news/local/grampian-man-pleads-guilty-to-homicide-by-vehicle-after-killing-girlfriend-in-2019
