HUNTINGTON -- Brandon Michael Cornette, 31, was booked into the Western Regional Jail about 1:15 a.m. Sunday after being arrested by the Wayne County Sheriff's Department on a felony charge of negligent homicide and DUI causing death.

The charge stems from an accident that happened late Saturday night near Tolsia High School in Fort Gay.

A 6-year-old girl, whose name has not been released, died at an area hospital from injuries sustained after being hit by a car in that area.
