A 59-year-old Goodview man has been sentenced to prison in the drug-related death of his 34-year-old son.
KAGE-AM reports Jeffrey Schumacher Sr. was accused of supplying methadone to his son, 34-year-old Jeffrey Schumacher Jr., who died in May 2012.
He pleaded guilty in June to second-degree manslaughter. A judge sentenced him Thursday to 58 months on that charge and 48 months on a charge of sale of methadone to a person under the age of 18.
The two terms will be served concurrently.
Under Minnesota sentencing guidelines, Schumacher could be released from prison after serving a total of 39 months.
