CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) - A Cedar Rapids man who supplied heroin to someone who was found dead the next day has been sent to prison.

Prosecutors said Thursday that 24-year-old Austin Martens was given 11 years and three months behind bars. Martens also must serve five years of supervised release after he leaves custody.

Martens had pleaded guilty to distribution of heroin and admitted to supplying $80 worth of heroin to another person in March 2013. That person was found dead the next day after overdosing.
