A New York man who is awaiting sentencing for killing another man will spend 10 years in prison on a drug charge.

Jeffrey Brown of Buffalo was sentenced in federal court Wednesday following a 2016 arrest for heroin possession.

He continues to await sentencing in state court after pleading guilty in January to an unrelated charge of manslaughter.

The 43-year-old admits to shooting and killing 46-year-old David Brown of Buffalo in 2017. The men were not related.
