LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

A Lubbock County jury has handed down a guilty verdict and sentenced Anthony Acosta to 10 years in prison for his role in a hit and run accident that killed 50-year-old Reynaldo Rincon.

Acosta was accused of striking Rincon with his vehicle and failing to stop and render aid back in 2015.

Acosta was arrested in September of 2015 months after Rincon's body was found near 32nd Street and Avenue G. Police were able to obtain a search warrant after they were given a Crime Line tip with the description of Acosta's 2001 Chevy Monte Carlo, the vehicle that matched a description from the scene.
