UPPER MARLBORO, Md. (AP) - A man who prosecutors say ordered the killing of a teenage girl has been sentenced to 15 years in prison.

McDonald Abraham was sentenced in Prince George's County Circuit Court on Friday after pleading guilty to second-degree murder and conspiracy to commit murder.

Prosecutors say the 27-year-old Abraham put out a hit on 17-year-old Stacey Seaton because he believed that she was involved in a burglary at his home. Seaton was shot in the back of the head, and she was found unconscious on June 1, 2005 behind her parent's townhouse complex.
