The man accused in a deadly hit-and-run accident near Interstate 35 last June has entered a guilty plea.

Thirty-two-year-old Derek Anthony Sanders, of Wyoming, Minnesota pleaded guilty to a Criminal Vehicular Homicide charge Tuesday afternoon, according to court records. The victim was 24-year-old Army veteran Trevor Langlois, also of Wyoming.

Authorities said Langlois was standing outside his parked truck on an Interstate 35 entrance ramp in Hinckley when Sanders hit him and drove away. Court records show Sanders was under the influence of alcohol.

Sanders is expected to be sentenced in May.
