EMPORIA, Kan. (AP) - An east-central Kansas woman has been ordered to spend a year behind bars for a 2013 fatal crash that killed a bicyclist.

KVOE-AM of Emporia (https://bit.ly/1W6q3nZ ) reports that a Lyon County judge sentenced 41-year-old Jean Getten on a conviction of vehicular homicide. She was acquitted last month of a charge of involuntary manslaughter.

Authorities say a pickup truck driven by Getten, who at the time of the crash was known as Jean McComber, hit and killed 51-year-old bicyclist Ronald Kennedy of Ottawa, Kansas, on a highway west of Emporia.
