Motorist gets 10-20 years for killing cyclist while fleeing local police

Posted

A motorist who struck and killed a Highspire motorcyclist in Middletown’s square while he was fleeing police during a high-speed chase was sentenced to 10 to 20 years in prison and 16 years of probation by a Dauphin County Judge on Tuesday, Dec. 3.


Steven Henderson, of Steelton, apologized to the widow, father and other family members of Gregg Kisic, the 51-year-old motorcyclist he killed in the 2012 chase.


Judge Deborah Essis Curcillo imposed the sentence on Henderson, a sentence that was approved by the Dauphin County District Attorney’s office, Kisic’s family and Henderson’s attorney, Curcillo said.


Henderson had pleaded guilty to third-degree murder and lesser charges in August.


“I know you guys are going through a lot of pain,’’ Henderson told Kisic’s family. “I’m deeply sorry. I never intended for this to happen.’’{jcomments on}
