WICHITA (AP) – A Wichita man was sentenced to more than 14 years in prison for causing a fatal car accident while fleeing from police.
The Wichita Eagle reports 30-year-old Greg Berry was sentenced Thursday for the November 2004 crash that killed 55-year-old Vicki Brown of Haysville.
Prosecutors say Berry was fleeing from a Sedgwick County sheriff’s deputy when he caused the wreck at a Wichita intersection.
Berry was convicted of first-degree murder in August 2005. But the Kansas Supreme Court overturned the conviction, saying the jury should been able to consider lesser charges. He was convicted in August of second-degree murder, possession of cocaine and unlawful possession of a firearm.
