An Allegheny County judge on Wednesday sentenced a West End man to life in prison for the fatal shooting of another man in a drug deal gone bad.

Common Pleas Judge Beth A. Lazzara sentenced Eugene McMiller, 20, to spend the rest of his life in prison for the Oct. 14, 2012 death of Justice J. Charles, 27.

Another man also charged in the case, Gary Smith, 26, of Clairton, remains in the Allegheny County Jail on $75,000 bond while he awaits trial scheduled for March 18.

A jury in October found McMiller guilty of first-degree murder, robbery and recklessly endangering another person.
