KINGMAN, Ariz. (AP) - A Bullhead City man charged with selling drugs after his stepdaughter’s killing has been given a 20-year prison sentence.

Bella Grogan-Cannella’s body was found in September, prompting police suspicions that the 8-year-old girl’s family was dealing drugs.

Their investigation revealed 28-year-old Ralph Folster sold methamphetamine five times to police informants in October. His wife, Tania Grogan, and mother, Freddie Nicholson, were also arrested.

The Kingman Daily Miner and Mohave Daily News reported that Folster and his attorney argued he sold drugs out of depression following his daughter’s death. His neighbor, 26-year-old Justin James Rector, has pleaded not guilty to murder charges in her death.

Folster has a lengthy juvenile and adult criminal record, and was on parole in California at the time of his arrest.
