(09/08/10) BROOKLYN - The former police officer accused of hitting and killing Vionique Valnord, the daughter of a Brooklyn pastor, pleaded guilty today.

Andrew Kelly accepted a plea deal for second-degree vehicular manslaughter. He was sentenced to 90 days in prison which will be followed by five years probation.
