PITTSBURGH (AP) - A man has been sentenced to 30 to 60 years in prison in the death of a western Pennsylvania art student who authorities said was killed in an apparent drug deal that involved trading an iPad for heroin.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette (https://bit.ly/1IrmmzF ) reports that 21-year-old Shilee Dixson of McKees Rocks was sentenced Monday in Allegheny County Court.

Dixson was convicted in a nonjury trial in October of second-degree murder, robbery, conspiracy and possession of a firearm by a minor in the May 2011 shooting death of 20-year-old Malachi Urbini, an Art Institute student.

Defense attorney Louis Emmi declined comment.

Twenty-three-year-old Taivon Cunningham is awaiting trial in the case.
