MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) - A judge has sentenced a Washington state man to 20 years in the Montana State Prison for shooting a man in an apparent dispute over stolen drugs near Missoula.

The Missoulian reports (https://bit.ly/1AKHoTn) Troy Anthony Miller was sentenced Wednesday to 20 years with no time suspended for shooting Michael Drozdowicz through the neck and shoulder. Miller was charged with attempted deliberate homicide and robbery, but the charges were amended to assault with a weapon.

Drozdowicz says he asked Miller and Katherine Evans for a ride downtown July 16. Instead they drove east on Interstate 90, exiting near Turah where charging documents say Drozdowicz was kicked in the head and shot.

Before sentencing Miller said he’s trying to better himself.

Evans pleaded guilty to a charge of accountability to kidnapping. Her sentencing is set for March 17.
