FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) - A man who pleaded guilty in the drug-related killings of three people in northeastern Indiana has been sentenced to 200 years in prison.

23-year-old Kameron Joyner was sentenced Tuesday.

The Fort Wayne man had pleaded guilty in August to three murder counts in the shooting deaths of 23-year-old Jevonn Johnson, 20-year-old Colton Messmer and 21-year-old Tracey Andrews.

Joyner also pleaded guilty to two counts of attempted murder for shooting and wounding two other people in the November 2018 attack inside a home in Fort Wayne.

Investigators have said that Joyner went to the home to kill a man over a drug debt.

Another man, Gerald Pinkston, is also charged in the killings.

His trial on murder and criminal recklessness charges is scheduled for Dec. 3.
