Man pleads in Anchorage parking garage killing

Posted: Friday, April 04, 2003

ANCHORAGE (AP) An Anchorage man accused of killing another man during a drug deal last October has pleaded guilty after reaching a deal with federal prosecutors.

Miguel Orellana, 18, pleaded guilty Thursday in federal court to discharging a firearm in connection with trafficking drugs. He also admitted possession of marijuana with intent to sell and possession of a firearm while using marijuana.

In a hearing before U.S. District Judge James K. Singleton, Orellana admitted he shot Dustin Lloyd, also 18, during a fight over a marijuana deal.

The shooting occurred on the seventh floor of a downtown parking garage. Lloyd died from the bullet wound.

Under the plea agreement, Orellana will serve 11 1/2 years in federal prison and have five years of probation after his release.
