A man from Surry involved in a deadly car crash three years ago was expected to be sentenced Monday.

But the judge rejected a plea deal and the case will now go to trial.

Steven Moon is charged with manslaughter.

The Hancock County District Attorney says the plea agreement recommended Moon serve two years in prison with four years probation.

The judge turned it down so Moon withdrew his no contest plea.

Moon was driving on Newbury Neck road in Surry in May 2011 when the car went off the road and rolled over.

His passenger, Caleb Foster, was killed.

Moon and two other passengers suffered serious injuries.

    The judge made the right decision. Stephen has not changed his ways and has yet to understand the consequences of his actions. I doubt an extended stay in state prison will teach him anything either, but it will prevent him from drunk driving for a few years.
