Posted: Wednesday, October 29, 2008

ANCHORAGE - A man who struck and killed a pedestrian with his vehicle will serve six months in prison.

Under a plea deal, Matthew Gifford also will serve three years probation after pleading guilty for failing to render assistance and driving under the influence.

He was initially charged with second-degree murder and other charges in the April 2007 death of Christopher Jenkins, who was hit in one of Anchorage's busiest intersections.
