APPLETON, WI (WTAQ) - A Little Chute woman will spend the next year in jail after running over and killing a bicyclist in Kimberly last summer. 

PaKou Xiong was texting while driving when she killed Jim Weiss along Kimberly Avenue. 

She was sentenced Tuesday after pleading no contest to charges of homicide by negligent use of a motor vehicle. 

Xiong apparently swerved and hit Weiss during the early morning hours on a late July night. 

Weiss’s bicycle has proper reflectors and lights. 

Upon her release, Xiong will spend five years on probation where she will not be able to drive without approval or have a cell phone. She will also be required to spend 100 hours on community service ever year. She will have to wear prison orange and a pin to memorial Weiss.
