A man accused in a 2012 drug deal that turned deadly in Phoenix has been sentenced to 11 years in prison for second-degree murder.

Maricopa County prosecutors say 31-year-old Daniel Albert Alvarado was sentenced Monday after reaching a plea agreement in the case.

He was originally arrested on suspicion of first-degree murder and selling marijuana and pleaded not guilty to the charges in March 2013.

Daniel Alvarado admitted he and Danny Alvarado planned to sell about 12 to 15 pounds of marijuana, according to police.

On June 2, 2012, Daniel and Danny Alvarado went to a home in the 8900 block of West Vernon for the pot deal.

They met with three men and as they discussed the drug deal, the two men pulled out handguns and fired at Daniel and Danny Alvarado, hitting Daniel in the torso and buttocks before he fled the home.

Daniel Alvarado said he knew Danny Alvarado was shot. Daniel Alvarado ran from the home and hid near a fence at a neighbor's house, according to police.

Danny Alvarado later died.

Police recovered the vehicle that Daniel Alvarado drove away in, and officers say they found that the vehicle had been set on fire and there was blood on the driver's seat.
