(KMZA)-- A Wamego man has been sentenced to six years in prison for a second fentanyl-related death.

22-year-old McKaine Farr was handed the sentence Thursday in Pottawatomie Country District Court on a felony charge of distribution of a controlled substance, causing death.

A jury found him guilty of the charge in March stemming from the death of a Manhattan man in March 2023.

A jury convicted Farr of the same charge in December of last year in the September 2021 death of a 21-year-old Wamego man.

Farr was sentenced in January to more 13 ½ years in prison for that conviction.

The two sentences are to run consecutively.
