OLATHE, Kan. (AP) -- A 37-year-old methamphetamine dealer from Topeka has been sentenced to life in prison for killing a mother of five who he thought was a police informant.
The Kansas City Star (http://bit.ly/KxM7Tc) reports Jason Munjak will be eligible for parole after serving 20 years of the sentence he received Wednesday in Johnson County District Court.
He was also sentenced to 37 months for distributing methamphetamine.
Munjak pleaded guilty in April to shooting and killing 37-year-old Toby Marie Rock on Jan. 19 at a motel in Merriam.
Rock, who had lived in Kansas and western Missouri, had gone to the motel to buy drugs from Munjak. Witnesses said Munjak pulled out a gun and shot her in the head.
