A judge today sentenced a married couple that hit two USC students crossing the street last year March, leaving one dead, to the maximum time allowed in prison, according to the Associated Press. The case became widely know due its horrific nature. For example, Claudia Cabrera and her husband Josue Luna were said to have taken Marcus Garfinkle from their windshield to the sidewalk before leaving. Garfinkle survived, but 18-year-old Adrianna Bachan did not.

Cabrera was driving on a suspended license and may have been drinking at a party before the incident. The two tried to hide the crash by fixing the car in Mexico. Cabrera received eight years in prison and Lunda got seven.
