KTRS, St. Louis, MO - A Metro-east man is headed to prison connected to a fatal hit-and-run that happened near Cahokia last summer.
Kevin Powell was sentenced to five years in jail and five years of probation after his release. Powell was driving the car that hit and killed 9-year-old Fabian Teson. Fabian was riding his bike when he was hit. He was taken to Cardinal Glennon Children's Hospital in critical condition and died two days later. Within a week investigators located the car that hit Fabian and traced it to Powell.
He was driving without a license at the time of the accident.
