GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) -- A Clemson University graduate student has been sentenced to prison in a 2010 hit and run crash that killed a 49-year-old man on a mo-ped.

Prosecutor Walt Wilkins says 28-year-old Astrid Muller was convicted last week of reckless homicide and hit and run accident resulting in death.

Muller was sentenced to three years in prison for the death of James David Grisham of Easley. Grisham died at the scene after he was thrown from the mo-ped he was driving. He was not wearing a helmet.

Wilkins says Muller fled the scene and hid her damaged car from law enforcement officers investigating the crash. She was arrested two days later.
