Driver in fatal accident avoids murder charge; shock probation possible after 170 days

-A A +A

Defendant agrees to 15-year term if shock probation not granted

By Thomas Barr

 PIONEER VILLAGE — After she testified on Friday morning, Cathy Compton walked over and gave Stephanie Lynn Coy a hug.

Coy was driving the vehicle on Nov. 10, 2017, that took the life of Compton’s daughter, Hannah.

But instead of asking for a possible murder conviction, Compton agreed to a 15-year sentence imposed against Coy, who could ask for shock probation after serving 170 days in confinement.

Bullitt Circuit Judge Rodney Burress accepted an amended plea agreement on Friday from Coy.
