Suspects in shooting of Wiz Khalifa's uncle handed long prison sentences

Two suspects accused of murdering Wiz Khalifa's uncle last year (14) have been sentenced to prison time after pleading guilty to the crime.

Michael Wolford, 21, and Jaron Young, 19, were both arrested on third degree murder and robbery-related counts after 20-year-old Imani Porter was shot in the head in a drug-related incident in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in January, 2014.


A third man, Paul Sanders, was also taken into custody on suspicion of taking part in the murder, but charges against him were subsequently dropped.


Wolford and Young both confessed to the fatal shooting in court on Tuesday (16Jun15). Wolford was ordered to spend 30 to 60 years behind bars, while his accomplice was handed a sentence of 12 to 25 years.


Sanders, 21, was convicted on felony heroin charges and handed a nine to 18 month jail sentence.


The Black and Yellow hitmaker has yet to comment on the sentencing.
