Guilty Verdict In Hit-And-Run Trial

A jury has convicted a man charged in connection with the hit and run death of a UK student.

The jury found Shannon House guilty of tampering with physical evidence and leaving the scene of an accident. He was found not guilty on a charge of marijuana possession.

Police say Shannon Houser's truck hit Connie Blount as she crossed the street near campus last April.

The jury recommended the maximum sentences; five years for the tampering with evidence charge and one year for fleeing the scene, and he'll be eligible for parole after nine months.
