Man gets jail in crash that killed Phoenix doctor

PHOENIX -- A Mesa man accused in a hit-and-run accident that killed a neurologist has been sentenced to 90 days in jail and five years of supervised probation.

Maricopa County prosecutors say 33-year-old Nicholas Linsk also was sentenced Friday to 500 hours of community service and must pay more than $18,000 restitution.

Authorities say Dr. Marwan Maalouf was struck in October 2012 while riding his bicycle in Fountain Hills east of Phoenix.

Saint Joseph's Barrow Neurological Institute officials say the 38-year-old Maalouf was a scientist, teacher and mentor for the past two years. They say the Scottsdale resident had been preparing to do research on treatment patients with Alzheimer's disease.

Investigators say they found debris from Linsk's pickup truck and bicycle tire marks inside the bike lane that led to the charges.
