Baltimore City Circuit Judge John Themelis sentenced Keon Stokes, 29, of Baltimore, to a total of 36 years in prison for second-degree murder in the death of a bicyclist.
Stokes received 30 years for second-degree murder, as well as three years for use of a handgun in the commission of a crime of violence and 18 months each for car theft and arson.
On May 1, 2005, Stokes, in a stolen vehicle, struck and killed Kurt Fulp, 20, while Fulp was riding a bicycle in the 1500 block of Presstman Street, and then fled the scene, prosecutors said.
Police responded to a call of a car fire later that day and determined the burning vehicle matched the description of the one that struck Fulp, according to prosecutors.
