RENO, NV - The man accused of killing KTVN sportscaster JK Metzker has pleaded guilty to leaving the scene of an accident causing death.

Ryan Rhea entered his plea in Washoe District Court Friday morning.

Rhea hit Metzker last November on North Virginia Street after a Nevada football game, then drove off, with police tracking him down later.

Metzker died the next day.

Rhea will be sentenced in September. The charge carries a sentence of two-to-15 years, with a fine of between two- and five-thousand dollars and restitution to Metzker's family.
