HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - A 21-year-old Bridgeport man has been sentenced to 28 years for prison for his involvement in a drug-related killing.

Trumaine Hearst was sentenced Tuesday in Hartford federal court in the October 2012 slaying of Dawayne Cobb.

Federal prosecutors say Hearst has admitted that he and another man killed Cobb, stole a jar with marijuana from him, and then distributed the drugs.

Cobb was found in the driver seat of an idling vehicle in Bridgeport with gunshot wounds in his shoulder and abdomen.

Hearst pleaded guilty to 2013 to one count of causing Cobb’s death through the use of a firearm.

An accomplice, Johnnie Jefferson, pleaded guilty to the same charge and awaits sentencing.
