WILKES-BARRE — A white SUV that was involved in the death of a 63-year-old man two years ago will be returned to its owner, a Luzerne County judge ruled Thursday.

The 2004 Chevrolet Trailblazer has been impounded since Karen McCann, who had cocaine and prescription medications in her system at the time, drove it into Aloysius McLaughlin as he was doing landscaping work outside a Third Avenue home in Kingston on June 30, 2011.

Judge William Amesbury on Thursday signed an order authorizing release of the Trailblazer to Joseph McCann of East Bergh Street, Plains. The relationship between Joseph and Karen McCann was not noted in court documents.

Following a guilty plea, McCann in September 2012 was sentenced to serve 46 to 96 months in state prison.

The vehicle has been held at Falzone’s Towing in Wilkes-Barre.

Prosecutors indicated that holding the vehicle was no longer necessary as the appeal period had passed.

A motion by Karen McCann seeking reconsideration of sentencing was denied on March 11.
