PHOENIX (CBS5) -

A man involved in hit-and-run crash that killed an 11-year-old boy has been sentenced.

A court spokesperson said Judge Jeanne Garcia sentenced Mabior Ding, 33, to 10 years in prison and five years supervised probation, as part of a plea deal.

Ding faced charges of manslaughter and leaving the scene of a fatal collision after Enoc Quejada was pinned to a cinder block wall by an SUV that was backing out of an apartment parking space on March 25, 2013, said Phoenix Police Sgt. Trent Crump.

Police said Ding allegedly tried to back up from the Fountainhead Apartments while a security "Club" was still attached to the steering wheel and brake pedal of a 1999 Isuzu Amigo about 7:45 p.m.

Enoc was walking with his mother and became pinned between the wall and the SUV at 4326 N. 35th Ave.

Witnesses told police the suspect got out of the SUV and helped pull the child from under the vehicle, but then walked away from the scene. Witnesses told police they believe alcohol might have been a factor.

Enoc was taken to a hospital, where he died a short time later from his injuries.

On March 24, 2013, a witness came to police headquarters and told police he owned the vehicle and was there when Ding drove it into the wall and fled. He claimed to have been drinking with Ding that night.

The next day Ding came into the police station for an interview and requested an attorney.
