LANCASTER, Pa. — A Pennsylvania man who pleaded guilty to providing the heroin that led to a woman’s death two years ago has been sentenced to prison.

Twenty-five-year-old Albert Stewart, of Lancaster, has been ordered to serve between 8 and 16 years in prison as part of a plea deal.

Police say he sold heroin to a 58-year-old woman who overdosed and died on Oct. 2, 2015.

He separately pleaded guilty to another charge of selling heroin in September 2015.
