OLATHE, Kansas — A 33-year-old Kansas man has been sentenced to more than 15 years in prison for killing a former Kansas City Chiefs cheerleader in a traffic crash while fleeing from police.

The Kansas City Star (http://bit.ly/1H5of5X ) reports Roy Lee Maney was sentenced Wednesday in Johnson County District Court to 154 months for reckless second-degree murder and 34 months for leaving the scene of an accident.

Maney pleaded guilty to the charges in February stemming from an October 2013 incident that killed 30-year-old Tiffany Mogenson, a Blue Springs, Missouri, dance studio owner.

Maney was driving an estimated 90 mph when his car crashed into the rear of Mogenson's car, which was stopped at a red light.

The sentence was the result of a plea deal between prosecutors and Maney's attorney.
