INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — A central Indiana man convicted in the hit-and-run death of a 63-year-old Indianapolis woman has been sentenced to two years of home detention.

The Indianapolis Star reports Greg Hudson of Shelbyville was sentenced Friday after being found guilty of a charge of failure to stop at an accident causing death.

Police have said Kathleen Clark died when she was struck about 7 p.m. on Jan. 13, 2013. The owner of a nearby bar found her body in a grassy area the next morning.

Rick Clark, Kathleen Clark’s son, says justice wasn’t served. He says Hudson got a “slap on the hand.”

An anonymous tip led police to Hudson, then 50, who was arrested four days after the crash. Documents show he thought he struck a wooden barricade.
