A Baltimore man accused of killing a dentist in Glen Burnie was sentenced Tuesday to serve 60 years in prison for an unrelated 2008 murder over a $150 debt, according to the city state's attorney's office.

Dante Jeter, 24, who was convicted in June of first-degree murder and weapons violations, was sentenced by Baltimore City Circuit Court Judge Marcus Z. Shar to life in prison with all but 60 years suspended, the prosecutor's office said. Prosecutors said Tyrone Freeman, 25, was shot in May 2008 over a drug debt.

Jeter, along with a cousin, is scheduled to be tried later this month in Anne Arundel County in the 2006 fatal beating of dentist Albert Woonho Ro.
