FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT)- A man involved in a deadly hit-and-run back in 2017 was set to be sentenced Friday morning.
Justin Votaw pleaded guilty back in April to five counts of leaving the scene of a crash. The crash involved three vehicles, and killed Jonathan Tracy, 23, and Alisa Arseneau, 24. Three others were injured, including Votaw's passenger, who told police Votaw was gone when he came to.
In court Friday, Judge Surbeck heard from Votaw and his attorney, as well as multiple letters from family members of the victims. Afterwards, he requested more time to consider Votaw's sentence.
The prosecuting attorney, Adam Mildred, requested eight years, with seven of those spent behind bars. Judge Surbeck is expected to deliver Votaw's sentence on June 8th.
