Murder suspect sentenced in drug possession case

LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - One of two suspects in the 2010 beating death of a University of Louisiana at Lafayette student has been sentenced to prison for drug possession charges unrelated to the murder.

 23-year-old Ian Trahan was sentenced Thursday to five years in prison and five years of supervision once he is released for possession of Xanax.

He also was ordered to service a concurrent six-month prison sentence for possession of marijuana.

Trahan, of Youngsville, and Wayland Guillory, of Lafayette, each face a first-degree murder charge in the November 2010 beating death of Kenneth Donnelly Jr.
