A 39-year-old man was sentenced Monday to over ten years in prison for supplying fentanyl-laced pills to rapper Mac Miller resulting in his fatal overdose four years ago at his Studio City home.

Ryan Reavis, formerly of West Los Angeles, pleaded guilty last year to a federal count of distribution of fentanyl, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office. He was sentenced to 131 months behind bars.

On Sept. 7, 2018, the 26-year-old Mac Miller, whose real name is Malcolm James McCormick, was found dead in his home in the 11600 block of West Valley Crest Drive in Studio City.

Miller died of an accidental overdose caused by a mix of fentanyl, cocaine and alcohol, according to the toxicology report from the L.A. County coroner's office.

Prosecutors allege that Reavis, Stephen Walter, 48, of Westwood and Cameron Pettit, 30, of West Hollywood, distributed narcotics to Miller two days before the performer overdosed.

The indictment alleges that Pettit ordered the fentanyl-laced pills from Walter, and Reavis delivered the narcotics to Pettit, who sold the drugs to Miller.

Pettit also pleaded not guilty in Los Angeles federal court.
