KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) — A Kansas City, Kansas, man was sentenced to more than 22 years and five months in prison for second-degree murder and other crimes arising from a fatal accident while he was fleeing from police.

Twenty-nine-year-old Christopher Bradley Stewart was sentenced Monday for the February traffic crash. He was fleeing from police when his car hit one driven by 62-year-old Graciela Olivas, who was killed.

Stewart pleaded guilty in July to second-degree murder and eluding a police officer. He also pleaded guilty to a previous drug possession case. He was wanted for skipping sentencing in that case at the time he killed Olivas.
