CLARKESBURG, W.Va. (AP) - A state prison inmate who was allegedly drunk during a deadly crash while he was on furlough has an Oct. 27 plea hearing in Harrison Circuit Court.

Under a plea agreement, Jeffrey Scott Davis is scheduled to plead to felony driving under the influence resulting in death, according to The Exponent Telegram (https://bit.ly/1GC580g ).

The 32-year-old defendant from Wallace was on furlough from Parkersburg Correctional Center early on the morning of April 26 when he lost control of his vehicle and it crashed into a ditch. A passenger, 27-year-old Courtney Lane Cottrill, was killed.

Davis allegedly told officers he had drank about six beers prior to the crash.
