Two men pled guilty and were sentenced in the murder of Imani Porter, uncle of Wiz Khalifa.
21-year-old Michael Wolford was sentenced to 30-60 years in prison and 19-year-old Jaron Young was sentenced to 12 1/2-25 years. Homicide charges against 21-year-old Paul "Los" Sanders were withdrawn; he was sentenced to 9-18 months on felony heroin charges.
WTAE reported that Porter was shot in the parking lot of a Pittsburgh-area Steak 'n Shake on the night of January 10, 2014 while selling eight brick tons of heroin, according to the eyewitness testimony of Leevan Jefferson.
It was a textbook drug deal gone wrong; Wolford shot Porter in the head as he sat in a car with Jefferson as Wolford and Young attempted to get away without paying for drugs. According to the testimony of one police detective, Young said his gun accidentally went off when Porter brushed it away.
