Man, 90, gets probation in parking lot death

Posted: Updated:

ADRIAN, Mich. (AP) - A man has been sentenced to probation and ordered to stop driving following the death of a woman who became trapped between vehicles in a southeastern Michigan store parking lot.
    
The Daily Telegram of Adrian reports John Ellis of Adrian was sentenced on Monday, his 90th birthday.
    
Ellis earlier pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor of moving violation causing death. Defense lawyer Grace Garno says Ellis feels terrible about the death.
    
Fifty-nine-year-old Linda Guzman died in February after being pinned in Lenawee County's Madison Township. Police say Ellis backed his van out of a space and hit a pickup truck, trapping Guzman. According to investigators, he hit the accelerator when he intended to brake.
    
Guzman's sister LaVerne Guzman says the family wanted Ellis off the road, not behind bars.
