Man sentenced to 10 years in motorcycle fatality

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- A Sedgwick County man has been sentenced to 10 years and three months in prison for the death of his motorcycle passenger during a police chase.

The Wichita Eagle reports (http://bit.ly/11nVHgV ) that court records show 23-year-old Joshua L. Wynn was sentenced Thursday for the September 2011 death of 19-year-old Mallory Scofield.

Wynn was convicted in February of second-degree unintentional but reckless murder as part of a plea deal.

Scofield died when she and Wynn were thrown from a motorcycle in west Wichita while Wynn was fleeing from a sheriff's deputy after an attempted traffic stop.

Wynn also was sentenced to a six months for license violations.
