Edward James Killian was sentenced to three years in prison on Tuesday for his role in the 2015 fatal-hit-and-run collision that killed 11-year-old Avory Glover as he walked down the darkened El Centro road where both he and Killian resided.
In choosing not to sentence Killian to a maximum-four year prison term, or probation, County Superior Court Judge L. Brooks Anderholt cited the presence of both mitigating and aggravating circumstances and how they influenced his decision to impose a middle prison term.
“The court finds that the factors for granting probation are outweighed by the factors to deny probation,” Anderholt said.
The three-year prison term was imposed as a result of Killian’s conviction on June 5 for felony hit-and-run, while a one-year county jail term related to the misdemeanor vehicular manslaughter conviction was stayed, or delayed, by Anderholt.
