A Weidman man who killed a bicyclist in a hit-and-run accident earlier this year faces up to 10 years in prison after pleading guilty.

He was originally charged with driving with a suspended license causing death.
Pastotnik was driving north on South Winn Road near West Broomfield Road late on Aug. 5, when he struck struck Alma resident Elias Nelson Lopez, who was riding his bicycle in the same direction.
Pastotnik will be sentenced Jan. 20 by Judge Mark Duthie.
