ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - A Pensacola man who prosecutors say killed a 76-year-old man in a dispute over an illegal liquor transaction, has been sentenced to 30 years in prison.

A judge sentenced Marcus Toler on Friday. The Pensacola News Journal (https://on.pnj.com/1LdXJvv) reports that Toler pleaded no contest to second-degree murder in July to charges that he struck Ben Stallworth in the head with a blunt object during a confrontation between the two. Stallworth later died.

Prosecutors said Stallworth brewed and sold his own liquor, and according to witnesses a fight between him and Toler was the result of a liquor-related transaction.
