YPSILANTI, Mich. (AP) - A Washtenaw County man who had murder charges against him dismissed in the June 2014 fatal shooting of a 17-year-old boy during a gang conflict has been sentenced on drug charges.

The Ann Arbor News reports (https://bit.ly/1JkCruc ) Keandre Duff pleaded guilty in two cases to delivery of marijuana, buying a gun without a license, possession of marijuana and possession of prescription drugs. The 20-year-old received to two years of probation Tuesday.

Duff’s court-appointed lawyer had asked for a sentence of time served since he spent 296 days in jail while charged in the death of Keon Washington at an Ypsilanti house party.

The Ypsilanti Township man had been charged with open murder, but that was dismissed as trial was to begin in April after prosecutors said there was insufficient evidence.
