A man was sentenced to serve life in prison Tuesday for killing Oakland County, MI, Sheriff’s Deputy Eric Overall, reports mlive.com.

Christopher J. Berak was found guilty by a jury in early November of first-degree murder and homicide of a peace officer for the 2017 death of Overall.

The charges stemmed from a Thanksgiving 2017 incident during which Berak hit and killed Overall, 50, with a vehicle at M-15 and Seymour Lake Road in Brandon Township after a miles-long pursuit that spanned three counties. Overall was attempting to deploy stop sticks.
