On Friday, Monroe's widow lashed out at Orrego-Savala during his sentencing, saying justice had not been served, the Star reported.
"You're a drunk, a liar, a murderer and a coward," Deborah Monroe said. "You didn't even have the decency to pull his dead body from the road before you ran."
Mary Ellen Jackson, the mother of Edwin Jackson, spoke while family members sat nearby, the Star reported.
"Edwin was a lighthouse," she said. "His character was unwavering."
Police said Orrego-Savala, who also goes by the name Alex Cabrera Gonsales, was in the United States illegally, despite being deported in 2007 and again in 2009.
