MEDFORD - A Medford couple who left the scene of a deadly hit-and-run crash was sentenced to community service Monday, prompting outrage from the victims' families.

Last February, Kathy Horan hit two cars and a group of people on the side of Granny Road in Medford. The victims were exchanging insurance information after a minor fender bender.

Horan's car struck and killed 28-year-old Peter Quoma and 58-year-old Lynn May. 

The couple fled the scene and did not report the accident for hours, which led to the criminal charges. Alcohol and drugs were determined not to have been factors in the crash.

As part of a plea deal, Kathy Horan pleaded guilty in exchange for the sentence of community service and probation in lieu of jail. 

Horan received 560 hours of community service. Her husband Frank got 280. The Horans were also ordered to pay more than $10,000 in fines and restitution.

Peter Quoma's mother chided the judge for not issuing jail time, arguing that Horan had not showed emotion after killing two people.

Neither victim's family wished to speak with News 12 after the sentencing.
