KINGMAN, Ariz. (AP) - A Kingman man suspected of killing a woman as he was being pursued by police has been sentenced to 15 years in prison on charges related to an assault that occurred nine days before.

The Kingman Daily Miner reports (https://bit.ly/1NxjYvx) jurors deliberated for less than an hour before convicting 43-year-old Robert James Dodd last month. He was sentenced Monday.

A multi-agency task force had been pursuing Dodd in April 2014 on warrants for parole violation and auto theft. Prosecutors say Dodd fled after the vehicle he was driving fishtailed and collided with a patrol car driven by Kingman Officer Jesse Kennedy.

Dodd is being tried in September on second-degree murder and other charges related to a subsequent chase and collision that killed 66-year-old Linda Chevalier.
