Pensacola, Florida (AP) --

A Pensacola man has been sentenced to life in prison for fatally shooting a man during a drug deal.

An Escambia County jury found 20-year-old Kenneth Eriby guilty on September 3 of first-degree murder. He was sentenced immediately after that. Prosecutors were not seeking the death penalty.

Authorities say 28-year-old Arthur James Roland was found shot
to death, slumped over his steering wheel in October 2008.

Witnesses testified that Eriby, armed with a pistol, said he was
going to rob a drug dealer.
