(KMZA)--A Wamego man convicted in the Fentanyl-related overdose death of another Wamego man has been sentenced to more than a decade in prison.

According to the Pottawatomie County Attorney's Office, McKaine Farr was sentenced Thursday in Pottawatomie County District Court to 13 years and 9 months behind bars on a charge of distribution of a controlled substance, causing death.

A Pottawatomie County jury found him guilty of the felony offense last month.

The charge stems from the overdose death of Jayson Ebert in September 2021.

Farr is also awaiting a separate trial in March for another Fentanyl-related overdose death at a Manhattan hotel last March.
