Sentencing delayed for driver who struck, killed teacher in 2008

Brandon Wise charged in Columbia County case on Mullikin Road

A hearing to sentence an Evans man who struck and killed a kindergarten teacher walking beside a highway in 2008 has been postponed.

Brandon Len Wise, 27, will not be sentenced at the hearing originally scheduled for this morning in Columbia County, Assistant District Attorney Anthony Nicastro said.

Wise was charged with second-degree vehicular homicide, traveling too fast for conditions and improper windshield tint, all misdemeanors. A plea agreement had been expected to be worked out before the hearing.

Wise was driving a Ford Expedition south on Mullikin Road July 16, 2008, when it struck Christian Giles, 24, who was walking with her husband and dogs.
