Man sentenced in death of St. Louis high school coach

ST. LOUIS (AP) – A 37-year-old man has been sentenced to eight years in prison in the death of a St. Louis high school football coach in a hit-and-run crash.

Cory Robinson was sentenced Thursday for involuntary manslaughter and other charges. Police say Robinson tried to pass Derrick Mitchell’s car at an intersection in October 2019 when he hit Mitchell’s car, which was pushed into traffic and hit again.

Robinson, who was speeding, fled the scene.

Mitchell was an assistant football coach at Clyde C. Miller Career Academy High School.

Robinson was on probation at the time after pleading guilty in 2017 to weapons charges and resisting arrest.
