A Crow Wing County man has been sentenced to prison for the death of his then-wife after she was discovered to have been hit by a car last summer.

Tony James McClelland has been sentenced to 48 months, or four years, in St. Cloud Correctional Facility for a charge of criminal vehicular homicide. 

Crow Wing County Sheriff’s Office investigators worked for two weeks to determine the events leading up to 49-year-old Angela Marie McClelland's death after she was found on the morning of June 25, 2023, lying in the roadway off Highway 371 near the intersection of Legend Road and Killian Road.

He was initially facing one count each of second-degree murder, first-degree manslaughter, and two counts of criminal vehicular homicide. He pleaded guilty in February to one count of criminal vehicular homicide in exchange for the other charges being dropped. 

Court records indicate he will serve a minimum of two-thirds of the sentence in prison, and one-third on supervised release.
