Kayvon Cook was also sentenced to three years of probation on Wednesday in the September 2018 death of Chante Tucker.

Authorities say the 47-year-old Tucker ran into traffic in Hartford after an argument with her boyfriend. She died at the hospital hours later.

The 25-year-old Cook stopped at first but then drove away after a brief discussion with his passengers. He pleaded guilty in October.
