A New York man will spend nearly three decades in prison after authorities say he provided the heroin and cocaine that eventually led to the death of a York City man.

Dameon Lattimore, 40, was sentenced to 29 years in prison Friday, according to a release from the U.S. Attorney's Office.

Lattimore pleaded guilty in May 2016 for providing the drugs that led to the death of William Ezla, 26, in 2015.

York City police found William Ezla, 26, dead in an alley Jan. 21, 2015. According to the indictment, Lattimore; Yushonda Durant, 41, of New York; Frederick Gladfelter, 47, of York City; and  Shybri Walker, 29, of South Queen Street, sold heroin to Elza and a friend of his at Gladfelter's home at 316 Harding Court.

In December 2015, Lattimore, Durant and Gladfelter were indicted on the charges, according to the release.

Gladfelter pleaded guilty in December 2016 and is awaiting sentencing. Durant remains a fugitive, the release states.
