Justice has been served in the death of Wiz Khalifa's uncle Imani Porter.

Two men have pleaded guilty to murder in the drug-related shooting death of Porter, who was killed last year in a fast food restaurant parking lot. Porter was 20 years old when he died.


The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports that 21-year-old Michael Wolford will spend 30 to 60 years in prison while 19-year-old Jaron Young was sentenced to 12 1/2 to 25 years in prison (he was 17 at the time of the murder, but was tried as an adult.) The two pleaded guilty last week to third-degree murder and robbery-related charges, and Wolford expressed remorse for his actions.

A third man, 21-year-old Paul "Los" Sanders, was cleared of murder charges after his attorney successfully argued that he "was never involved in a homicide." He was instead sentenced Tuesday (June 16) to nine to 18 months in jail on felony heroin charges. 

"Life is a gift. Every breath is a blessing," Wiz tweeted Thursday. is your #1 source for Black celebrity news, photos, exclusive videos and all the latest in the world of hip hop and R&B music.
