LITTLE VALLEY, N.Y. (AP) - A man who fatally struck a retired western New York couple in the town where they held elected offices has been sentenced to prison time.

WIVB-TV in Buffalo reports that 28-year-old Kevin Donaldson Jr., of Cattaraugus, was sentenced Monday in a Cattaraugus County court to 1 2/3 to five years in prison for the deaths of Michael and Donna Phillips.

The couple was walking across a road in front of their home in Salamanca on Dec. 15 when they were hit by a vehicle Donaldson was driving. He was charged with two counts of vehicular manslaughter and later pleaded guilty.

Michael Phillips was Salamanca town supervisor and Donna Phillips was the town clerk. Police said they were headed to town hall when they were struck.
