Man gets 45 years for drug-related killing

SKOWHEGAN (AP) — A Maine man has been sentenced to 45 years in prison for the drug-related slaying of another man sitting in his pickup truck.

Robert Nelson of Norridgewock was sentenced Tuesday for killing 60-year-old Everett Cameron of Anson with a close-range gunshot to the head during a drug transaction in October 2009.

Nelson was convicted of murder in December.

Nelson admitted he met Cameron the day of the shooting, but didn’t kill him. He said he met Cameron to tell him he couldn’t repay money he owed him for prescription drugs Cameron sold him.
