The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports that 21-year-old Michael Wolford and 19-year-old Jaron Young have pled guilty to the murder of Wiz Khalifa’s uncle, Imani Porter.

Along with the new development in the case, court documents recount the events leading up to Porter’s death and reveal the crime motive. Back in January of 2014, Porter met with the the two young men in a Steak n’ Shake parking lot in Pittsburgh to sell them heroin. When Wolford and Young tried to get the drugs for free, a fight ensued and Porter was shot. He died from a gun shot wound to the head. He was 20 years old.

In the midst of mourning his late uncle, Wiz spoke to MTV News shortly after the tragedy and remembered the good times.

“I remember his smile. He had the biggest, biggest smile,” Wiz told MTV. “He’s just a handsome, young man; he’s always going to be with us.”

Wolford and Young pled guilty to third-degree murder, robbery, conspiracy to commit robbery and two firearm violations last Friday and received their fate today. Wolford was sentenced 30 to 60 years in prison while Young was sentenced to serve 12 and a half to 25 years.

Rest in peace to Imani Porter and condolences to Wiz’s family. XXL has reached out to Wiz’s reps for a statement.
