CHESAPEAKE, Va. (WVEC) -- A judge handed down a four-year prison term to a man convicted of a drunk driving crash that killed a 22-year-old woman in March.

Police arrested 28-year-old Christopher Hudson Kita for a DUI in a crash that led to 22-year-old Teja Freeman's death.

Investigators say that in the early morning hours on March 4, a 2012 Mazda 3 had stopped in the left lane of westbound Interstate 264 near Witchduck Road with its hazard lights on, when a 2005 Toyota Tacoma could not stop and struck the rear of the vehicle.

The driver of the Mazda, 22-year-old Teja Monique Freeman of Norfolk, died at the scene.

Kita was charged with Driving Under the Influence. 

On Monday, Dec. 11, Kita was sentenced to 10 years and 365 days in prison, with six years and 335 days suspended, leaving him to serve four years and 30 days behind bars.

His license will be suspended indefinitely.
