Bee reporters answer questions about area crime news, trends and other issues.
QUESTION: What ever happened to the man arrested for the hit-and-run death of my friend Yuriy Kokhanyy on Greenback Lane near Garfield Avenue a couple of years ago? As I recall, he left Yuriy to die in the street, proceeded home where his mother attempted to help him conceal his brutal crime. I believe his mother's name was Donna Fraser. Wasn't she arrested as well for conspiracy? What was her punishment?

ANSWER: Glen Henderson and his mother, Donna Fraser, of Carmichael were arrested in connection with the hit-and-run death of 42-year-old Yuriy Kokhanyy in December 2010.
According to the California Highway Patrol, Henderson, then 26, was driving his mother's car when he struck Kokhanyy as Kokhanyy crossed from the north side of Greenback Lane to the south side, just east of Garfield Avenue, about 6:05 p.m. Officials said he was crossing outside of a crosswalk.
Henderson did not stop but continued eastbound, according to the CHP.
Fraser was not in the vehicle when the incident occurred, but she was arrested on suspicion of conspiracy and being an accessory after the fact.
According to Sacramento Superior Court online records, Henderson pleaded no contest to felony hit and run and to a misdemeanor count of vehicular manslaughter without gross negligence. He was sentenced to a year in jail and five years probation.
Fraser pleaded no contest to being an accessory and was sentenced to 90 days in a sheriff's work project and three years probation.
