(Tulsa-AP) -- A convicted drug offender will spend 45 years in prison for killing a 14-year-old girl by injecting methamphetamine into her.

Robert Dean Coldiron was sentenced yesterday in Tulsa County after pleading guilty last month to second-degree murder in the 1996 death of Cindy Coblentz. The plea is part of a plea agreement that reduced the charge against him from first-degree murder.

A medical examiner's report says Coblentz died as a result of a toxic level of methamphetamine in her body.

Coldiron was also sentenced to ten-years for a related drug possession count. The 55 year term will run consecutively with a 20-year term Coldiron is now serving for another drug conviction.
