WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) - A North Carolina man has pleaded guilty to charges after his vehicle ran off a road and struck and killed another man waiting for a church bus last year.

The Winston-Salem Journal reported 38-year-old Erik Brandon Randolph of Kernersville pleaded guilty in Winston-Salem on Monday to charges of second-degree murder, possession of drug paraphernalia and several traffic violations.

Prosecutors say Steven Curtis Stewart was waiting for a bus to take him to the church where he served as an usher on Aug. 7, 2016, when he was hit.

Police said Randolph had heroin in his system when his minivan struck Curtis. He died nine days later at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center.

Superior Court Judge David Hall sentenced Randolph to between 19 years and 24 years in prison.
