PITTSBURGH (AP) - Two men have pleaded guilty to murder in the drug-related shooting death of rapper Wiz Khalifa’s uncle in a Pittsburgh-area fast-food restaurant parking lot.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette (http://bit.ly/1Ga52fX ) reports that 21-year-old Braddock resident Michael Wolford will spend 30 to 60 years in prison while 19-year-old Penn Hills resident Jaron Young was sentenced to 12 1/2 to 25 years in prison.

They pleaded guilty June 12 to third-degree murder and robbery-related charges in the January 2014 death of 20-year-old Imani Porter.

Homicide-related charges were withdrawn against a third man, 21-year-old Wilkinsburg resident Paul “Los” Sanders. He was instead sentenced Tuesday to nine to 18 months in jail on felony heroin charges.

His attorney says Sanders “was never involved in a homicide” and shouldn’t have been charged.

Wolford’s attorney says his client is remorseful.

This story has been corrected to show that Wolford and Young pleaded guilty June 12, not Tuesday.
