Brian Tromans, the man found guilty of hitting and killing a national guardsman last year was sentenced in court.

Tromans was sentenced to 2 1/3 to 7 years and an additional 1 1/3 to 4 years.

In December, he was found guilty of hitting and killing Master Sergeant Rudolph Seabron, a national guardsman from Oneida County while he was walking in Colonie. Tromans then left the scene.

Seabron's family spoke in court before the sentencing.

"Rudy embodied that ideal of service to Country service to mission service to family and service two teams, and his fellow man,” said Seabron’s cousin John O’Meally.

During his sentencing Tromans said he did not know he hit Seabron that night and said he is "sincerely, sincerely sorry for what happened.”
