MASON, Mich. (AP) -- A 28-year-old man has been sentenced to life in prison without parole for a hit-and-run crash in Ingham County.

Jordan Dunn on Wednesday received the mandatory term for first-degree murder in the death of 42-year-old Ben Berlin in Vevay Township.

Dunn told the court: "I'll never possibly know what the family is going through and I'm sorry, deeply sorry, for the loss."

A jury convicted Dunn in June. Prosecutors said that Dunn slammed on the brakes, drove in reverse and then paused on Oct. 30 before driving a pickup at Berlin. Dunn's attorney, Vince Green, had argued that Dunn was confronted that night by an angry crowd.

Berlin had a wife and four children. His two sons testified as eyewitnesses to the crash.
