COLUMBIA (AP) - One of two suspects in a central Missouri homicide has been sentenced to 20 years in prison after pleading guilty to charges in the case.

The Columbia Daily Tribune reports that 21-year-old Durantrae D. Logan of Columbia was sentenced Tuesday to two 20-year sentences, to be served concurrently.

Logan pleaded guilty in Boone County Circuit Court to second-degree murder and armed criminal action in the March 2012 shooting death of 39-year-old Lamont Sargent.

Prosecutors said the shooting occurred during a drug deal.

A co-defendant in the case, Larrell M. Banks of Fulton, is also charged with second-degree murder and attempted distribution of a controlled substance. He has a hearing scheduled for Sept. 30 and a jury trial Oct. 9 in Boone County Circuit Court.
