PHOENIX (AP) -- A driver who was charged with hitting a pregnant woman and killing her baby in Phoenix after drinking 30 beers is going to prison.
 
A Maricopa County Superior Court judge sentenced Guadalupe Castaneda on Friday to 10 years in prison for second-degree murder, aggravated assault and leaving the scene of an accident involving injury.
 
Castaneda's sentence, which includes five years of supervised probation, was issued as part of a plea agreement.
 
Phoenix police say Castaneda admitted to drinking before driving around in the early morning of Aug. 25, 2013. They say he sideswiped a man and struck two women working at a taco stand while trying to flee in a stolen car.
 
Investigators say one of the women was four months pregnant at the time. The baby later died.
