BATON ROUGE - A man convicted of killing a cyclist in Baton Rouge could find out how long he will spend behind bars Wednesday.

A judge is expected to sentence Joseph Branch. He was convicted of vehicular homicide for hitting two cyclists while driving drunk in 2012, killing one and causing permanent damage to the other.

Sentencing was supposed to take place in December, but his defense team filed motions for a new trial, which they later withdrew.

Branch faces up to 30 years in prison.
