YORK, Pa. (AP) — A central Pennsylvania man has been sentenced to 20 to 46 years in prison in the death of a man who authorities said complained about the quality of drugs he was sold at a York crack house.
Nineteen-year-old Bruce Williams Jr. of York was convicted of third-degree murder last summer in the November 2011 shooting death of 32-year-old Jesse Heverling of Dover.
York County prosecutors said Heverling was gunned down after arguing with Williams about the quality of the crack cocaine he had purchased.
Williams, who was 17 at the time, was sentenced to 17 to 40 years on the murder count and a consecutive three to six years on a weapons charge.
He said in court Thursday that he was “sorry for the loss” of the victim.
