Tallahassee, FL - A Tallahassee man will soon be sentenced for a drug deal that ended in murder.

Denzell Billings-Harrison was found guilty of felony murder and armed robbery for a confrontation at the Shaker Heights apartments in February 2012.

Prosecutors contend Harrison and his cousin Jamal Kee went to the apartment to buy drugs and tried to rob the three men inside.

At some point one of the victims grabbed a knife and fought back - he stabbed Harrison and killed Kee. Yet Harrison was the one charged with Kee's murder because it happened during the hold up.

Harrison's attorney promises an appeal.
