Walkersville man charged in witness' death sentenced on drug charges

April 16, 2010

BALTIMORE (AP) -- One of five people charged in a witness killing case has been sentenced to 17 1/2 years in federal prison on two drug-trafficking charges.

Jesse Dorsz, 28, of Walkersville, Md., was sentenced Thursday in U.S. District Court in Baltimore. The charges were not directly related to the July 7, 2005, killing of David Wayne Lee Jr., but part of a plea bargain agreement in the case.

Lee, 20, was shot in the head about two weeks before he was expected to testify in a federal drug and weapons investigation.

The alleged leader of the Frederick drug ring, Steven Leroy Stone, has already been sentenced to more than 24 years for his role in Lee's death.

Two others have also received lesser sentences, but no plea agreement or trial date has been set for the last defendant in the case, 22-year-old Randall Hildebrand of Frederick, Md.
