CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - The man who pleaded guilty in connection to the death of his pregnant girlfriend on I-90 was sentenced on Tuesday morning.

Patrick Carner faced a Cuyahoga County judge, who delivered a four-year prison sentenced for charges that include obstruction and tampering with evidence.

During a June court appearance, Carner changed his plea to guilty for the crimes.

Investigators first accused the 28-year-old of throwing Vonnashia Akins onto I-90 in October 2019, but his attorney claims she jumped out of his vehicle following an argument.
