WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. (AP) - A man has been sentenced to 15 to 40 years in prison on convictions in the murder of another man in what authorities called a botched robbery attempt during a drug deal.

Twenty-two-year-old Mirad Shabazz of Easton was sentenced Tuesday in Lycoming County.

He pleaded guilty in March to third-degree murder, conspiracy and fleeing apprehension in the January 2013 slaying of 21-year-old Terrell Henderson-Littles near the Pennsylvania College of Technology in Williamsport.

Shabazz also agreed to testify against 19-year-old Jason Gardner of Easton, who was convicted of second-degree murder, robbery, conspiracy and fleeing apprehension. He was sentenced to life in prison without possibility of parole.

After the victim’s mother urged him to try to make something of his life, Shabazz told her “Truly I am sorry for the loss.”
