PANAMA CITY, Fla. — A Florida teen has been sentenced to 50 years in prison for killing a man over a baggie of marijuana.

The Panama City News Herald reports that the now-18-year-old man was sentenced Monday after pleading no contest to second-degree murder.

Authorities say the teen shot Owen Frazier during a drug robbery in January. The teen’s two accomplices received sentences of 10 years and 12 years after agreeing to testify against the teen.
