RENO, Nev. (KRNV & MyNews4.com) -- One Reno man has been sentenced to 15 years in prison after pleading guilty to deadly hit and run last summer.
On Jul. 7, 44-year-old Candido Aniceto-Trejo was driving westbound on McCarran Boulevard when he drifted to the right and hit a moped in the bike lane. The driver, Eric Thomas, was thrown from the moped and died the next morning from critical head and body injuries.
Aniceto-Trejo originally fled to Texas, but investigators were able to link evidence back to his SUV. Aniceto-Trejo will be deported back to Mexico after he serves his sentence.
