NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. (AP) - A New Brunswick man charged with murder in another case has pleaded guilty to vehicular homicide in a hit-and-run accident that killed a man on a bicycle.

Under terms of a plea agreement, 40-year-old Timothy Puskas will face up to eight years in prison when he’s sentenced in October.

Puskas admitted hitting 26-year-old Lopez Hernandez of New Brunswick. The custodian was riding his bike home from work when he was struck on the side of Georges Road in January 2012.

Puskas was indicted in May on charges he killed 22-year-old Kean University student William McCaw in February 2014. McCaw died of blunt force trauma. Puskas pleaded not guilty in that case.
