BALTIMORE (AP) -- A man who killed another man when a drug transaction went bad has been sentenced to 50 years in prison.
Thirty-three-year-old Jason K. Hamel was sentenced Tuesday. He had been convicted of second-degree murder and the shooting death of Keyva Bluitt.
According to evidence presented at trial, Hamel met three men in Federal Hill on June 20, 2008 to buy $5,000 worth of cocaine. Prosecutors say Hamel paid for and got a package, but found it contained only a t-shirt.
Officials say Hamel pulled out a handgun and fired a single shot into the sellers' car, striking Bluitt.
