PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -

A Marana man accused of taking authorities on a high-speed chase across the Phoenix metro area last March was sentenced Thursday.

A judge sentenced Joshua Monigold to 10 years in prison.

Monigold, 32, was accused of trying to steal a motorcycle in Mesa, then leading authorities on a high-speed chase through the Valley. That chase ended with a crash on Interstate 10 near Sun Lakes.

He had pleaded guilty to theft of means of transportation, robbery, unlawful flight and criminal damage.

Authorities say he has previous convictions, including misconduct involving weapons, theft and drug violations.

Monigold was also wanted in connection with a March 19 hit-and-run in Marana.

Monigold's wife April was also arrested after the chase. She was booked into the Pima County Jail on two felony charges of unlawful use of means of transportation and facilitation.
