NOKOMIS, Fla. (Your Sun) - A Nokomis man who recently finished serving a 10-year sentence for vehicular homicide has been taken into custody on charges that he was dealing drugs.

According to Your Sun, Gregory McClure had already been sent to prison for speeding and striking a car on Tamiami Trail in Sarasota back in 2009, killing its 82-year-old driver.
