CHAMBERSBURG — A Chambersburg man received no jail time for a 2011 vehicle accident that killed a Shippensburg woman.

Jeffrey Davies, 22, was sentenced Wednesday in Franklin County Court of Common Pleas to 72 months split between wearing an electronic monitoring bracelet and on intensive probation, according to court documents.

Davies was found guilty Dec. 3, 2012, of homicide by vehicle. According to Public Opinion archives, he was charged with homicide by vehicle and aggravated assault after a Jan. 4, 2011, crash near the intersection of Lincoln Way West and Sollenberger Road that killed Kristi L.
