Man who killed Arizona doctor sentenced to prison

Posted: Updated:

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) - A Mexican man charged in the hit-and-run death of a Phoenix doctor in 2015 has been sentenced to four years in prison.
    
Ruben Santiago-Lopez was sentenced Friday in Maricopa County Superior Court.
    
Police say Dr. Robert Arceci died at the scene in June 2015 after a landscaping truck turned in front of him while he was riding his motorcycle in Scottsdale.
    
The 65-year-old Arceci was hematology/oncology division chief at Phoenix Children's Hospital.
    
Police say the truck that hit Arceci pulled over, but the driver identified as Santiago-Lopez ran away.
    
Prosecutors say the 27-year-old Santiago-Lopez fled to Mexico, where he remained for a year and a half.
    
Santiago-Lopez returned to the U.S. in November 2016 and turned himself in.
    
He eventually pleaded guilty to leaving the scene of a fatal accident.
