      Jurors handed down the maximum sentence available for Michael Fowler, 28, guilty of negligent homicide in the hit-and-run death of a 12-year-old Wooster boy.

      Garrett Martin was driving a 4-wheeler on Burgess Lane near his home on Aug. 15 of last year when Fowler, who was intoxicated, struck Martin's ATV and continued driving.

      Martin died instantly of a skull fracture, according to official testimony, when he was propelled ahead of the wreck and onto the pavement.
