Man sentenced in deaf girl's death

An Indiana judged gave Derek Dewitt 85 years in prison for killing a deaf teenager. Dewitt hit Dawn Boozer-Carter and her mother (who is also deaf) with his SUV as as they were holding signs for a carwash to raise money for Indiana School for the Deaf. The Indianapolis said he is schizophrenic and hadn't taken his medication. This won't be his first trip to prison. Dewitt also spent time behind bars for stabbing a woman in Atlanta.
