HILLSBOROUGH — A woman was charged with the drunk-driving death of her husband outside their home in February.
Robert O'Keefe, 41, was struck by a vehicle driven by wife Amanda O'Keefe, 37, at their Clark Lane home around 2:30 a.m. on Feb. 25, Somerset County Prosecutor John P. McDonald said. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
