WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A Wichita man who killed a bicyclist in a hit-and-run accident has been sentenced to more than 11 years in prison.

The Sedgwick County District Attorney's Office says 36-year-old Randall Duane Myers was sentenced last week for the January 2014 death of 34-year-old Christina Brown.

The Wichita Eagle reports Myers was sentenced to concurrent sentences of 11 years and six months for second-degree murder and six months for misdemeanor driving under the influence. A charge of failing to stop at a fatal accident was dropped when Myers pleaded no contest to the other charges.

Police say Brown was hit by a truck as she and a friend were riding bikes in southeast Wichita. The other bicyclist was not hurt.

A witness followed Myers and called police.
