Randy Lee Anderson of Wilmington pleaded guilty Monday to second-degree murder in Brunswick County Superior Court.
Anderson, 24, of Thomas C. Jervay Loop in Wilmington faced murder, firearm and drug charges in the June 24, 2013, shooting death of Michael James Link, 23, of Leland.
Anderson was sentenced to 11 and a half to 15 years in prison.
A spokeswoman from the Brunswick County Sheriff's Office said the shooting happened when a drug deal went awry.
Emily Flax of the sheriff's office said Anderson and two other people, David Rashad Duncan, 22, of Wilmington and Courtney Renee Bryant, 19, of Leland, met with Link about 1:15 a.m. in the Deerwood Meadows mobile home park off Mount Misery Road in Leland to conduct a drug deal. After the shooting, Anderson and the others fled the scene, Flax said.
Bryant and Duncan were charged with marijuana possession and conspiracy to sell or deliver marijuana. Charges were dismissed against Duncan. Bryant's charges are still pending, according to court records.
