The drunk driving case involving 19-year-old Katie McKewon has been continued to Feb. 11, it was decided this morning by a judge.
McKewon, who was the driver of a car that crashed head-on into another vehicle, killing her passenger, was expected to enter a plea of either guilty or not guilty today. She is being charged with gross vehicular manslaughter and four counts of felony DUI related to the accident on Oct. 20.
Her attorney, Kirk Eppler, asked the judge for a continuance, saying he just received the autopsy report of Laurel Williams, who was killed in the crash.
McKewon and Williams had been at a house party in Pleasanton the night before the accident. They left the house the following morning when McKewon, driving a Ford Mustang, allegedly crossed over the double yellow lines and collided head-on with a Mercedes SUV, killing Williams and critically injuring the driver of the Mercedes.
Paul Stonebarger, 21, of Brentwood, has been charged in connection with providing the alcohol for the party, knowing that minors would be attending.
His next court date is Feb. 13, where he is scheduled to enter a plea.
