SEDGWICK— A Kansas man is going to prison for his actions related to the drug death of another man.

Bryce Martin, 31, was sentenced November 26 to 10½ years in prison, according to Sedgwick County District Attorney Marc Bennett.

Martin pleaded guilty to charges of aggravated battery and possession of methamphetamine for sale.

In May of 2018, police were called to a Wichita residence and found 41-year-old Jacob Healzer on a floor. Police say his injuries included face fractures.

A coroner’s report says Healzer died of acute methamphetamine intoxication with contributing factors of heart disease as well as blunt force trauma to the head and neck.

KANSAS CITY, KAN. – A Kansas man whose auto windows were so darkly tinted that it gave police a reason to stop him was sentenced Tuesday to 10 years in federal prison on a drug trafficking charge, according to U.S. Attorney Stephen McAllister.

Ty Stultz, 44, Shawnee, Kan., pleaded guilty to one count of possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine. Police in Kansas City, Kan., responded to a complaint that a man in a silver Cadillac was selling drugs at an apartment complex. They spotted Stultz driving out of the complex.

They found probable cause to stop him when they noticed that the one-way glass in his windows appeared to violate state law, which prohibits window tinting that blocks more than 35 percent of sunlight. In the car, officers found methamphetamine and a .40 caliber handgun. A records check determined Stultz had prior drug convictions.
