KENAI - A 24-year-old man who supplied the heroin that killed another man in Soldotna will serve six years in prison.
The Peninsula Clarion newspaper reported a judge also mandated Wednesday that Thayr Watson apply to participate in a substance abuse treatment program.
Watson earlier pleaded guilty to criminally negligent homicide.
Watson was charged in the death of Jason McCafferty, whose lifeless body was found in the bathroom of a Soldotna grocery store in August 2008. Authorities say he ingested heroin sold to him by Watson.
Soldotna police said Watson was tied to the death through surveillance tapes, cell phone records and personal records.
