TUCSON, AZ - A Tucson man who pleaded guilty to weapons violations has been sentenced to 4 1/2 years in prison.
Pima County prosecutors say 42-year-old Leandro Antonio Perez faced two counts of possession of a dangerous weapon by a prohibited possessor.
Perez originally was charged with first-degree murder as well as numerous drug charges in connection with the killing of Juan Barrios.
The 41-year-old Barrios was shot to death at his Tucson home in March 2013 and authorities say it was related to a drug debt.
The murder and drug charges against Perez later were dropped.
