A change of plea is expected in the case of a man accused in a deadly 2017 crash in Belchertown.

Mary Carey, spokesperson for the Northwestern District Attorney's office, said that an attorney for 19-year-old Ryan Fellion indicated in court Friday that he expects a change of plea at Fellion's next court hearing.

Fellion is facing charges including motor vehicle homicide by negligent operation related to a February 2017 crash along Route 9 in Belchertown that killed 62-year-old Larry Kelley.

Carey noted that this week, Judge Michael Mulcahy ruled that Fellion has to provide his cell phone passcode to investigators so that they can complete a search warrant on his phone.

Mulcahy also reportedly denied a defense motion to suppress the seizure and search of that phone.

That next court hearing is scheduled for Thursday, April 26 in Eastern Hampshire District Court in Belchertown.
