ID=10506141

SACRAMENTO - A man found guilty last month of second-degree murder and leaving the scene in connection to the deaths of a young man and four dogs was sentenced 25 years to life in prison Friday.

Sacramento Superior Court jurors convicted Paul William Walden of hitting Harison Long-Randall, 21; his girlfriend Gemily West, 23; and their four dogs on a Carmichael street in July 2012. Long-Randall died from his injuries two weeks later and West was seriously injured.

The jury also found Walden guilty of gross vehicular manslaughter and felony driving under the influence for three DUI priors.
