Anthony Paul Cisco, 42, was sentenced to 10 years in prison after pleading guilty to Vehicular Homicide in the pedestrian accident death of Rebecca Wilkie-Moore, of Purdy, in July of 2008.

Wilkie-Moore was a widowed single-mother when she was hit by Cisco as she walked from the bus on Purdy Drive in Tacoma.

Cisco drove away after the accident, leaving Wilkie-Moore mortally wounded, but was followed by a witness.

Vehicular Homicide can be charged if a person is killed and the driver was under the influence of alcohol and drugs, driving recklessly or driving without regard for the safety of other.
