PHOENIX - A man has been sentenced to five years in prison in the fatal hit-and-run death of a man riding an adult-sized tricycle in Mesa in 2013.

A Maricopa County Superior Court judge sentenced 37-year-old Matthew S. McIver on Friday in the Aug. 13, 2013 accident that killed the 68-year-old victim.

McIver had pleaded guilty July 10 to manslaughter and leaving the scene of a fatal accident.

McIver told police that he panicked after hitting something on the highway on Aug. 13, but didn't know what it was.
